   The Ukrainian KrAZ-5401NE truck was designed in 2016. It started life as a chassis for fire fighting vehicles. Though this truck can be also used for other heavy duty applications. It is also being proposed for military use. However by 2020 there were no production orders for this truck from Ukrainian armed forces or other countries.

   The KrAZ-5401NE can carry more payload than most similar vehicles with 4x4 configuration. This truck can carry loads of up to 9 t. The baseline chassis can be used to mount various special equipment.

   The KrAZ-5401 has a Chinese military-style cab. Similar cabs are used on Shaanxi high mobility tactical trucks, such as the SX2300. Also this cab strongly resembles those of the the German MAN military trucks. Windows are positioned vertically in order to reduce light reflections.

   The KrAZ-5401NE is powered by an unspecified diesel engine. Most likely that it is a Russian YaMZ-238D diesel with 330 hp. This engine is common on KrAZ military trucks. It is likely that the engine was not specified exactly due to hostile relations with Russia. The KrAZ also offered Cummins, Deutz, Volvo and other Western engines on its vehicles. Vehicle is fitted with a central tyre inflation system, which improves mobility over difficult terrain.

   Chassis of the KrAZ-5401NE truck was used for a BM-21UM Berest artillery rocket system. It was first publicly revealed in 2018. This artillery system carries 50 launch tubes for 122 mm rockets.
