   The MZKT-79292 is a Belarusian special wheeled chassis with 10x10 configuration. It was first publicly revealed in 2011. It is a derivative of the MZKT-7930 with an added axle. Also this special wheeled chassis resembles a MAZ-7929 with 10x8 configuration, which emerged in the late 1980s and early 1990s and was intended to carry Kuryer (courier) ballistic missiles. The Belarusian MZKT-79292 was designed to compete with a Russian BAZ-69096 special wheeled chassis with 10x10 configuration, which is planned to be used as a transporter erector launcher for a new Russian S-500 long-range air defense and anti-ballistic missile system. The Belarusian MZKT-79292 can be also tailored for other roles. This vehicle is mainly aimed at Russian market, as Belarus has no requirement for these heavy high mobility vehicles. So far this vehicle received no production orders.

   The MZKT-79292 can carry 35 t of payload. It is mainly intended for heavyweight Transporter Erector Launcher (TEL) applications. This special wheeled chassis can be used to carry various missiles, artillery rocket launchers and so on. It can be used as a load handling system or fuel tanker. This vehicle has good cross-country mobility and can travel  over difficult terrain and off-road.

   The MZKT-79292 has a forward control cab, which accommodates driver and 2 passengers. The cab is made of fiberglass. Similar cabs are used across the range of MZKT multi-axle vehicles. An armored cab is proposed as an option. It provides some degree of protection for the crew against small arms fire and artillery shell splinters.

   This Belarusian special wheeled chassis is powered by a Russian YaMZ-8463.10 diesel engine, developing around 503 hp. It is mated to a 9-speed manual transmission. Engine is located behind and under the cab. This feature allowed to reduce overall height of the vehicle. Cooling systems of the engine are also located behind the cab. Such location prevents damage of the the radiators and their blockage with mud. Vehicle has an independent hydropneumatic suspension. Maximum speed is limited to 45 km/h. A central tyre inflation system is fitted as standard. It improves mobility over difficult terrain, such as sand, snow and mud. Run-flat tyres are optional.

   The MZKT-79292 can be airlifted by An-22 and An-124 military transports.

 

Variants

 

   MZKT-79291 is a larger special wheeled chassis with 12x12 configuration. It has a payload capacity of 60 t and was designed to carry ballistic missiles. Most likely that it was specially designed to carry a new Russian RS-26 Rubezh intercontinental ballistic missile. This special wheeled chassis was first publicly revealed in 2013.
