   The Wanshan WS2250 heavy high-mobility truck is a Chinese copy of American Oshkosh HEMTT, which is in service with the US Army. Chinese military issued a requirement for a new 8x8 tactical truck to replace the ageing Huanghe JN252 military truck. Similar copies of the US HEMTT were also developed by Shaanxi and North Benz to meet this requirement. It seems that the Wanshan WS2250 was never adopted by the Chinese military. The Shaanxi SX2306 was selected for production and is being used by the China's military. Interestingly China managed to copy and deploy pretty much all successful military trucks of the world. The Wanshan WS2250 military truck was offered for export customers.

   The main mission for this heavy truck is unit resupply. It can carry various loads to the frontline. The WS2250 has a payload capacity of 10 t over rough terrain and up to 16 t on hard surface roads. It can also tow trailers and artillery pieces. A baseline version of the WS2250 heavy truck is a troop/cargo carrier. Vehicle can be also used as a chassis for various shelters and specialized equipment.

   The forward control cab accommodates driver and two passengers. It seems that version of this truck with a double-cab is available. Also this truck is being proposed with an armored cab.

   The Wanshan WS2250 is powered by a turbocharged diesel engine, developing 440 hp. Engine is located behind the cab. This feature allowed to reduce overall height of the vehicle. Engine is mated to an automatic transmission. This military truck has good cross-country mobility and is rapidly deployable. Vehicle is fitted with a central tyre inflation system. Both front axles can be steered. The WS2250 is designed to operate in any climatic conditions, ranging from -41C to +50C. This truck can also operate up to 5000 m above sea level.
