In this paper we study a generalized class of Maxwell-Boltzmann equations which in addition to the usual collision term contains a linear deformation term described by a matrix A. This class of equations arises, for instance, from the analysis of homoenergetic solutions for the Boltzmann equation considered by many authors since 1950s. Our main goal is to study a large time asymptotics of solutions under assumption of smallness of the matrix A. The main result of this paper is that for sufficiently small norm of A any non-negative solution with finite second moment tends to a self-similar solution of relatively simple form for large values of time. We also prove that the higher order moments of the self-similar profile are finite under further smallness condition on the matrix A.
