Development: KrAZ-255 is a heavy Soviet truck with all-wheel drive, which was produced in series since 1967. The truck has been exploited in many countries of the former Warsaw Pact area and the current CIS states, militarily and in the civilian domain. It was developed by Kremenchug automobile plant in the 1960's and replaced the earlier KrAZ-214 on the production line. The key improvements of the KrAZ-255 over its predecessor are its more capable YaMZ-238 engine and the notably large tires. With its 7.5 t load capacity the KrAZ-255 chassis proved suitable for various specialist engineer variants.
