   The Tatra T816-6VWN9T prime mover was developed in 1997. It is based on the T-816 LIWA 8x8 high-mobility truck. It is designed to haul semi-trailers transporting tanks and other heavy vehicles or construction equipment up to a maximum weight of 74 t both on road and rugged terrain. It was specially developed to meet a requirement of the United Arab Emirates. This vehicle is a member of the Tatra Force family of heavy-duty tactical trucks.

   This prime mover has 8x8 drive configuration. It features exceptional mobility and robustness. This vehicle was designed to operate in extreme temperatures with high air humidity and dusty environments.

  Cab of this tank transporter provides seating for the driver and up to 8 passengers. So the tank transporter can carry entire crew of the main battle tank or self-propelled howitzer togeather with the vehicle. Cab of the Tatra has add-on armor capability. It may also have air conditioning if required.

   Vehicle shares some components of the T816 LIWA vehicles. It uses unique Tatra's independent swinging half-axles. Each wheel moves up and down independently, which allows exceptional cross country mobility and higher speeds on rough roads. This unique chassis has been constantly developed and improved. Vehicle is powered by a German MTU 12V 183 TD22 turbocharged diesel engine, developing 800 hp. This prime mover is fitted with a fully-automatic 10-speed transmission. Vehicle is equipped with two loading winches, as well as auxiliary winch. These are located behind the cab and are used for loading and unloading operations.
