   The BAZ-6909 special wheeled chassis was developed and is produced by Bryansk Motor Vehicle Plant. It is a purpose-designed heavy high mobility military vehicle. It is a baseline model of the Voschina family of military trucks. This family includes 6x6 and 8x8 heavy high mobility trucks, prime movers, artillery tractors, with a payload capacity of 13-21 t. There is a high degree of commonality between these trucks. Development of the Voschina family was funded by Russian Ministry of Defense. The BAZ-6909 has been adopted by the Russian armed forces.

   The BAZ-6909 is of conventional design. It was designed to carry specialized military equipment, such as weapons, missiles, shelters and radars. This vehicle has a payload capacity of 18 000 to 20 000 kg.

   The BAZ-6909 has good cross country mobility. It can operate on all kinds of roads, over rough terrain and in remote areas.

   Vehicle is fitted with a three-person armored cab. The cab can be armored. Also there are versions of this vehicle with extended cabs.

   Initially these trucks were powered by a YaMZ-8424.10 turbocharged diesel engine, developing 470 hp. Some sources claim, that later, a more powerful YaMZ-849 diesel was used. It develops 500 hp. Engine is located behind the cab. It allowed to reduce height of the vehicle and prevent engine and cooling system from damage and blockage with mud.
