   The Shaanxi SX2300 is an 8x8 high mobility tactical truck. It evolved from the Shaanxi SX2190 6x6 military truck that is widely used by the Chinese armed forces. The SX2190 is actually a Chinese license-produced version of the Austrian Steyr 91. So the Shaanxi SX2300 also use some Steyr technology. This 8x8 military truck was revealed in 2002. It has been adopted by Chinese armed forces and is being proposed for export customers. In some markets it is marketed under SHACMAN brand.

   This high mobility truck has a payload capacity of 15 000 kg. A baseline version is a general service troop/cargo carrier. It can tow trailers and artillery pieces with a maximum weight of 15 000 kg on hard surface roads and 12 000 kg off road. However the SX2300 can be used for various other roles. It can carry shelters or various equipment. There is also a fuel tanker version, that is used by the Chinese armed forces.

   Cab of this military truck followed the lines of the Steyr 91 cab. It accommodates driver and 5 passengers.

   Recently an updated version of this truck with a new cab appeared. It has a 4-door cab that strongly resembles that of the MAN KAT 1 A1. Windows are positioned vertically in order to reduce light reflections. There is even a version with an armored cab.

   Vehicle is powered by a Cummins ISM450 turbocharged diesel engine, developing 450 hp. This engine is license-produced in China. It complies with EURO 2 emission requirements. Powerful engine ensures high mobility even over difficult terrain. Engine is mated with an 8-speed transmission. Vehicle has 8x8 configuration with all-wheel drive. Both front axles are steerable.
