The development of the VT-55 version began at the Turčianske strojárni n.p Martin Development Plant in 1964 with the partial use of the license documentation of the Soviet recovery tank on the T-54 chassis (BTS-II). During the development, two prototypes were built, subjected to tests. Development was completed in 1968. A testing series was produced in 1969, serial production took place from 1969 to 1983. About 20% of the vehicles produced were bought by the Czechoslovak People's Army (ČSLA), exports to the former Warsaw Pact countries accounted for about 50%, the rest, about 30% bought the so-called non-socialist states.
