In 2007, the first pilot item of the MZKT-6922 hull-type chassis was designed and manufactured. The MZKT-6922 chassis was the fundamentally new design prepared by the Chief Designer’s Directorate engineers; it was intended to carry the Tor air defense system.

This chassis, when it replaced similar crawler vehicles, not only preserved all their best features but also added several new ones. Among those features, the noteworthy ones are such as high stability in operation, high cross-country ability, and lesser fuel consumption than that for similar crawler vehicles. Also, up-to-date designs in electronics are widely applied in the MZKT-6922 chassis series.
