   The MZKT-6922 is a Belarusian special wheeled chassis. It was designed as a specialized carrier for short- and medium-range air defense missiles, radars and associated equipment. The main goal was to create a wheeled chassis which could be used as a platform for Tor air defense system to replace its GM-5955 tracked chassis. New wheeled chassis instead of tracked one would reduce procurement, operational and servicing costs. Development commenced in around 2005. The MZKT-6922 is used by the Belarusian military. Deliveries commenced in around 2016. This vehicle has been exported to some countries, including Myanmar, Venezuela, and possibly some other countries.

   The MZKT-6922 is a high mobility chassis, designed to operate off road. It has a payload capacity ranging from 8 to 14 t, depending on the version.

   The MZKT-6922 is used as a chassis for some missile systems, including Belarusian Osa-1T and T38 Stilet, Kvadrat-M short-range air defense missile systems, as well as Russian Buk M2EK and Tor M2K air defense missile systems.

   A baseline version accommodates a crew of 4.

   Vehicle is powered by a Russian YaMZ-7513.10-04 diesel engine. It is a 14.86-liter engine, developing 420 hp. Engine is located at the rear. It is mated to an automatic gearbox, produced by MZKT. Vehicle has a full-time all-wheel drive. It uses a hydropneumatic suspension with adjustable ground clearance. This was required in order to reduce vibrations on sensitive equipment. Vehicle is fitted with a central tyre pressure system, which improves mobility over difficult terrain. The MZKT-6922 consumes 53 liters of diesel fuel per 100 km.
