   The Wanshan WS21200 is a Chinese 16x16 special wheeled chassis. It has been developed by Wanshan Special Vehicle company, using technology from Belarusian Minsk Automobile Plant. Older Wanshan trucks were based on Belarusian designs. This special wheeled chassis has a payload capacity of around 80 000 kg. It was specially designed as a road mobile Transporter Erector Launcher (TEL) for ballistic missiles. It is used as a TEL for Pakistani Shaheen 3 medium-range ballistic missile.

   A four-door crew cab of this vehicle accommodates driver, co-driver and a launch crew of the missile.

   This vehicle might be powered by a Cummins KTTA19-C700 turbocharged diesel engine, developing 700 hp, which is a commercially available industrial engine. Engine is mounted behind and under the cab.

   The Wanshan WS21200 special wheeled chassis has some degree of cross-country mobility. Though it is mainly intended to operate on hard surface roads.

   There is also another Wanshan WS51200 special wheeled chassis with 16x12 configuration. This vehicle has a different cab and some other changes. It is used by North Korea and carries intercontinental ballistic missiles.
