The load distribution along the axes looks like this: the front axle is no more than 6 tons, the rear axle is no more than 18.5 tons. The car is equipped with an eight-cylinder diesel internal combustion engine with a working volume of about eleven liters and a developed capacity of up to two hundred and forty horsepower.
