Designers and manufacturers of this special vehicles say that the choice of the KrAZ-63221 vehicle for mounting of 12 cu.m. tank. Extreme strength of KrAZ chassis frame due to use of side members made of hot rolled channel bars and 1300-530-533 tires for excellent off road ability have been decisive for the choice. Conventional design of the military chassis cab has also played a decisive part in it. “1,5 meters of life”, name given by soldiers to KrAZ bonnet located in front of the cab allows for improving safety of occupants in case of landmine or other explosive device explosion under the vehicle. It should be noted that the KrAZ-63221 chassis cab is one of the most popular KrAZ models both in Ukraine and abroad. Special equipment mounted on its chassis is widely used not only in the army but also in oil and gas industry.

The ?C-12-63221 tanker truck is used for carrying fuel over all kinds of roads at temperature ranging from - 40°? to + 45°?. These new special vehicles feature two independent tanks, which make it possible to keep half of fuel amount in case of tank damage. Moreover, this solution allows for carrying different fuels such as gasoline and diesel fuel at the same time.

Over 1700 special vehicles are used in war zone at the moment and most of them have respectable age. SC “Ukroboronprom” technicians say that renovation of old vehicles after long-term storage and keeping badly used old vehicles in running condition could hardly help improve military efficiency of Ukrainian army. State-of-the-art efficient vehicles such as fuel servicing vehicles are needed to provide units and subdivisions deployed in ATO zone with fuels and lubricants.

It should be remembered that “AutoKrAZ” built and delivered to the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine a variety of special vehicles available in axle configurations 4?4, 6?6 and a new lineup of KrAZ armored vehicles under the contract awarded by SC “Ukroboronprom”. Military say that this quantity of vehicles is not sufficient, re-equipment of military units and subdivisions is still needed.

Today’s production capacities and skilled staff allow for fulfilling any order in any quantity for various sectors of Ukrainian economy. KrAZ is ready to substitute imported products with efficient and reliable vehicles available in a variety of models. KrAZ is waiting for new orders and is ready to fulfill them.
