The Soviet truck KrAZ-255B entered production in 1965, and full series production started in 1967. KrAZ stood for Kremenchutskyi Avtomobilnyi Zavod (Kremenchuk Automobile Plant), a Ukrainian factory which produced these trucks. The KrAZ-255B had a revised braking system and was intended to replace the earlier KrAZ-214 truck. It had some visual similarities with the earlier KrAZ-214 but had a more powerful engine. Other design improvements included a hydraulic steering booster instead of the pneumatic booster of the KrAZ-214, and the standard 14.00-20 tyres of the KrAZ-214 were substituted by the new wide section pressure adjustable tires with a centralised tire inflation system controlled by the driver directly from the cab. In 1976 the KrAZ-255B was equipped with a new dual-circuit braking system to replace the single circuit system, and such vehicles were given the revised KrAZ-255B (B1) designation. Overall from 1967 till 1994 around 82,000 KrAZ-255B's were produced.
