   The Belarusian MZKT-74295 is a further development of the MZKT-7429, fitted with a different engine. First prototype of this tank transporter was built in 1996. In 2000 the MZKT-74295 lost tender in the United Arab Emirates. However during the same year the MZKT managed to sign a contract with Turkey. Turkish Army ordered a total of 130 of these tank transporters. Some modifications were made to meet the Turkish requirement. This resulted in the MZKT-74295 fitted with different engine and some other differences. This vehicle is also marketed under the Volat brand.

There are two sleeping berths for the crew. However the cab has got no space to accommodate crew of the vehicle that it transports.

   The MZKT-74295 tank transporters supplied to Turkey are powered by a Mercedes-Benz diesel engines, developing 500 hp. Engine is mounted under the cab, while the cooling system is behind the cab. Other engines and gearboxes were also proposed for this tank transporter. Other proposed engines include Deutz diesel, developing 544 hp, Mercedes-Benz diesels developing 544 and 570 hp, Russian YaMZ diesel, developing 470 hp. Vehicle has an 8x8 configuration. Both front axles are steerable. The prime mover is fitted with a central tyre inflation system. This tank transporter has some degree of cross-country mobility and can travel over rugged terrain.
