Photo in attachment...Please help :)
Sickening, weakening
Don't let another somber pariah consume your soul
You need strengthening, toughening
It takes a bit of dark to rekindle the fire burning in you
Ignite the fire within you

Evidently a Ukrainian beast built on an agricultural tractor, however I'm sure it was really designed to
fight the Mole People in their tunnels.

Intriguing interior BTW - looks like an early Ma.K. design to me ;):

I can't read Russian. If it's an "APC" some scrap industrial gear with thick skin to keep bullets out. With mesh to stop RPG fire if facing "ordinary" rebels. While presumably men in green have better gear and CAS on call, or tanks. So it's even useful then, with a call on the West for admission to NATO. Overall verdict? Cool, can not fail.
