Quickly following the finish of the war the Yaroslavl motor works, which had long ago transformed YAG-6 trucks in quite modest amounts, appropriated a request to advance a unique truck. So in 1947 showed up the YAZ-200, the first Soviet truck with a fourteen-chamber diesel motor, and a year later, the YAZ-210 with a more moving six-chamber YAZ-206 diesel. The proposed trucks started to figure in the stock of the Soviet Armed force; in any case, the Armed force had require of a truck with much preferred attributes, particularly mulling over crosscountry fitness.
Irrevocably good to go. Around WWII under the terms of the Give-Rent assention, separated from many the well-known ‘Studebakers’, a restrained number of Diamond and White weight tractors showed up in the USSR. The proposed trucks made a significant impression on the Soviet military, being as how the ZIS-5 and GAZ-AA, which Soviet industry had been handling following the pre-war period, n’tn’t contrast and the American vehicles, which were fit to pull a trailer stacked even with large tanks.
Separated from the USSR, the KrAZ-214 was considerably traded to different communist nations-East Germany, Czechoslovakia, Poland, Hungary, Romania, Vietnam, and additionally to Egypt and Algeria, where they were utilized by the armed forces of every one of the aforementioned nations. Some KrAZ-214 trucks are around 50 years old, and they are still managed in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Bulgaria and Germany.
Along these lines, in 1951 showed up the YAZ-214, a 6×6 truck which may convey 7 tonnes, and surprising single wheels ’15,00-20′ in width. The truck contrasted from its antecedents in offering a revamped style of cabin, which obviously indicated the impact design of the outlines of the American engine industry of the 1940′s. Nevertheless this truck quite instantly came to be vital in the Soviet Guard, and the YAZ-214′s whole creation run of 1,265 went straight into military lines.
In 1959, under the infrastructure arrangement for the engine industry, the legislature of the USSR chose to transfer supplies for truck produce from Yaroslavl to Minsk (biaxial trucks) and to the Ukrainian city of Kremenchug (triaxial trucks), where on the foundations of a minor preceding agrarian machinery plant, a goliath revamped plant was manufactured to generate expansive trucks.
In this way, the Russian YAZ progressed a revamped Ukrainian character. The trucks were at first given the name of ‘Dnepr’ (plainly, to mean the unique region of preparation), be that as it may this name did not keep going for extended, and in 1964 all trucks from Kremenchug were designated ‘KrAZ’, in place not to stand out from the different streams of the Soviet engine industry.
On the suspension as supplied from the plant in Kremenchug, different establishments were collected in special weapons production lines. The most regular were designing trucks-the PMP barge truck, the TMM scaffold layer, the E-305 power-scoop, and the FM truck-mounted crane (double movement terminating mechanism). Different holders might be fitted to the KrAZ-214 for transportation of fuel for the rocket troops, incorporating rocket charge.
The KrAZ demonstrated few important contrasts from its ancestor, not counting in the swap of the stylized Yaroslavl bear cabin on the hood by a nameplate in red and blue shades on the front radiator grille, which symbolized the banner of the Ukrainian SSR.
In this shape the truck was transformed until 1963, when it was redesigned to the KrAZ-214B with an enhanced electrical framework and a stronger hook section. The creation of this model endured generally 5 years more, and in 1967 the KrAZ-214 was displaced on the sequential construction system by the cutting edge truck, the KrAZ-255. For the most part, between 1959 and 1967 over 32,000 of the KrAZ-214 went out from Kremenchug plant.
While the YAZ-214 was utilized just as an even sided truck (not counting for the 2P5 Transporter-Erector-Launcher), its successor the KrAZ-214 had significantly more boundless practice in special forms.
