The design of the MAZ-537 ( MINSKY AVTOMOBILNY ZAVOD) series began during the early 1960s to produce a heavy load carrier and construction vehicle for use in remote areas. It is a further development of the MAZ-535 8x8 artillery tractor. Production of the MAZ-537 commenced in 1963 and it was first observed in 1964. Production of all variants was carried out at the Mink Motor Vehicle Plant. Most versions of the MAZ-537 are used as tank transporters. Despite it's age this heavy military vehicle is still in service with a number of countries, including Russia.

   The MAZ-537 tank transporter can tow semi-trailers with medium and main battle tanks with a maximum weight of 50 000 kg both on roads and rugged terrain. It is still capable of towing any MBT currently in service with the Russian Army.
