    It’s not a tank 🤣

    It’s an Arctic all-terrain vehicle (I hope I translated this correctly)

    “Машина, на которой передвигались солдаты по непроходимому снегу Чукотки, гусеничный транспортёр-снегоболотоход. ГТ-С имели очень хорошую проходимость и были созданы для самых жестких природных условий, которые на территории России вовсе не редкость. Этот транспорт способен прекрасно проходить по глубокому снегу, а также по болотистой местности”

    Google translate:

    “The car on which the soldiers moved through the impenetrable snow of Chukotka, a caterpillar transporter-snow and swamp vehicle. GT-S needs very good cross-country ability and the most severe natural conditions were created, which are not uncommon in Russia. This transport flows beautifully through deep snow, as well as through swampy areas.”

    Yep, the Soviets really did a great job fucking up their Arctic. They still are hard at work, thankfully, don’t have the same resources, but still.
