   The MZKT-7930 special wheeled chassis was developed in Belarus the early 1990s. Sometimes this vehicle is nicknamed the 'Astrolog'. It was designed to replace the ageing MAZ-543 special wheeled chassis. The first prototype was completed in 1994. The MZKT-7930 was accepted to service with the Russian Army in the early 2000. Currently this special wheeled chassis is produced in small numbers.

   The MZKT-7930 8x8 wheeled chassis has a payload capacity of 24 000 kg. It is mainly used to mount various weapon systems. This heavy load carrier is primarily designed for off-road applications.

   A forward control cab of the MZKT-7930 accommodates driver and two passengers.

   The MZKT-7930 is powered by a YaMZ-846 turbocharged diesel engine, developing 500 hp. For export customers it is proposed with a Deutz BF8M diesel engine, developing 544 hp, coupled with Allison automatic transmission. Vehicle has a full-time all-wheel drive and is fitted with a central tyre inflation system.

   This high mobility vehicle is used as a chassis for the Iskander-E short range ballistic missile system and Bal-E costal defense missile system, TMM-6 heavy mechanized bridge and other applications. It also carries radar of the S-400 missile system. There is also an MZKT-7415 tractor truck.
