   The Belarusian MZKT-741351 prime mover and associated trailers were specially developed to meet requirements of the United Arab Emirates. A pre-production prototype was first publicly revealed in 2016. It was planned that during the same year the prototype will be delivered to the UAE for trials. The MZKT-741351 is a revised and updated version of the previous MZKT-74135 with a different layout. The new vehicle can haul more load. Its predecessor, the MZKT-74135, was also developed to participate in the United Arab Emirates tender and eventually 40 units prime movers with associated trailers were ordered. Recent MZKT trucks are typically marketed under Volat brand.

   The unique feature of the MZKT-741351 prime mover is that it is used in conjunction with two trailers. These are MZKT-999421 6-axle semi-trailer which weights 26 000 kg and has a payload capacity of 76 000 kg and MZKT-837211 6-axle trailer, wich weights 18 000 kg and has a payload capacity of 60 000 kg. Combined hauled load capacity for this road train is a whooping 136 000 kg. So this vehicle can transport two Leclerc main battle tanks and one infantry fighting vehicle at once. Alternatively this vehicle can transport other loads, such as heavy armored vehicles, self-propelled artillery systems, three standard 20" containers, or various construction materials and equipment. Complete length of the road train is 42 meters. If required, the prime mover can be used only with a semi-trailer. So currently the MZKT-741351 is the most powerful tank transporters available on the market.

   Both the semi-trailer and the trailer have an adjustable width from 3.65 to 4.65 m. This feature allows to adjust the platform in order to carry various loads. Another feature of this road train is that the vehicles can drive onto the semi-trailer directly via the trailer. So there is no need for the crew to disconnect the trailers for the loading and unloading operations. The prime mover is fitted with a double winch for loading immobile vehicles. The rear trailer has two front steerable axles.

   Double cab of the prime mover can accommodate the driver and 7 passengers. So the vehicle can transport some crew members of the vehicles that it carries. Alternatively the rear seats can be folded to form 2 sleeping bunks. The cab has a provision for a roof hatch with a mount for general purpose machine gun. Also the cab can be fitted with add-on armor kit.

   Engine of the MZKT-741351 is located behind and under the cab. The cooling system is also located behind the cab. This feature allowed to reduce height of the vehicle. Also such design protects damage of the radiator or blockage with mud.

   Vehicle is powered by a Caterpillar C18 turbocharged diesel engine, developing 812 hp. It is mated to an Allison electronically-controlled automatic gearbox. Vehicle has a full-time all-wheel drive. Maximum road speed is electronically limited to 70 km/h. The prime mover is fitted with a central tyre inflation system.

   When fully loaded this road train has a road range of 700 km. When hauling only a loaded semi-trailer this tank transporter has a 900 km range. This road train has some degree of cross-country mobility.
