MAZ-543

 

From the MAZ-537 series the MAZ-543 evolved as a specialist carrier vehicle which was used to carry numerous missile and rocket systems. It was designed in the 1960s and entered service in 1962. It was first publicly revealed in 1965 as a part of SS-1 Scud-B ballistic missile system.

 

All MAZ-543 heavy trucks and their derivatives have forward control cabs, some versions using separate compartments on each side of the engine, each with tandem seating for two.

 

The MAZ-543 is powered by a standard tank engine, developing 525 hp. The same engine, as well as many other automotive components were used from the previous MAZ-537. Vehicle has a full-time all-wheel drive. Standard equipment includes an engine pre-heater and powerful cab heaters. This heavy load carrier is also fitted with a central tyre inflation system.

 

The MAZ-543 was used to carry numerous missile and rocket systems such as the SS-1 Scud series, and the SSC-3 coastal defense missile. Other vehicles are used as command and erector vehicles for the SA-10 Grumble missile system.
