The MAZ-79221 eight-axle all-wheel-drive wheel chassis is designed to carry the Topol-M missile system’s independent launching unit, related systems and special equipment, its transportation and handling unit, and to transport these items by I-IV class roads.

The Topol-M intercontinental ballistic missile was designed to replace the Topol missiles now in service upon expiration of their service life and to respond adequately to the US Star Wars program. This missile was designed both in silo-based and in mobile ground-based versions.

The MAZ-79221 chassis was intended to become a mobile base for this worldwide-unprecedented missile system.
