Simple Since the load carried by them is less they use a single tyre for the trailors. With total of 8 cars they may not weigh more than 12 tons.

Even I thought the same way when I had a first view.
But look at the trucks carrying them.They look similar in cab design etc.
So I had concluded after that.

Actually I have seen this kind of arrangement earlier, when I was on my way to Tirupathi, near Chittor check post. The vehicle was a ALL 4018 with NewGen Cabs, and it has met with an accident and so it was carried in the same way - Prime mover over the flat bed trailor.
Very Strange and complicated but it looks easy from what we see.

Here is a picture of Saizer Trasports 4018 fleet which had earlier met with the accident.

Of course proximity mirror is mandatory as per CMVR for trucks above

I have seen no better truck than the Kraz. It could cruise through the sand dunes of Pokhran or the slushy farms of Punjab towing a 10 ton Radar... its V8 diesel engine drives 257HP with ease... Was so fun to drive the Russian giant....

I think Indian army uses Tatra and Ural trucks for heavy off roads, never seen or heard of Karz in India.

Tatra there are many, had seen Ural trucks in Chandighar - Amristar route few years back.
