   The Wanshan WS2600 is a heavy-duty high mobility chassis. It was developed by a joint Chinese and Belarusian venture. This vehicle appeared in around 2006. It is a larger version of the WS2400 with additional axle. This wheeled chassis was designed to carry ballistic missiles. It is used by Chinese armed forces.

   Older Wanshan trucks have been based on Belarusian MZKT designs. However newer machines benefit from German technology transfer and are fitted with modern engines and transmission systems.

   It seems that the WS2600 has a payload capacity of around 40 000 kg. It is used to carry DF-21C (CSS-5 Mod 3) medium-range ballistic missiles and for some other applications. Vehicle has good cross-country mobility and can operate off-road.

   Vehicle has a  4-door cab. It accommodates driver plus around 7 passengers.

   Vehicle is powered by a Deutz turbocharged diesel engine, developing 544 hp. It is located behind the cab. Engine is mated with a ZF automatic transmission. This military machine has a 10x8 configuration. It is fitted with a central tyre inflation system. Tyre pressure can be adjusted by the driver while the vehicle is on the move, to suit the terrain type that is being crossed. The Wanshan WS2600 can operate in various climatic conditions, ranging from -40C to +50C.

   Wanshan also proposes a WS25000 special wheeled chassis with 10x8 and 10x10 configurations. There is also a HOWO 10x10 special wheeled chassis, that looks similar and has similar specifications. It was also developed to carry ballistic missiles.

 

   Special thanks for Daniel Young for sending images of Chinese military trucks!
