T-34 still in use in Yemen:

Does anyone else think this looks like WW2 German tank camouflage?

Fidel's SU-100 from the Bay of Pigs (now on display in Havanna), which he/they claim to have damaged one of the invaders' ships.
 

Only thing not found in the Tamiya kit is that box on the right rear casement (see third photo, above)

SU-44-120, one-off prototype.



For a "no wrong answers build" I'd suggest an SU-85 or 122 casement, T-54/55 hull, T-34 roadwheels and cylindrical external fuel tanks, plus a donor 120mm main gun with muzzle brake.

@Story - was there any mention of the intended purpose for this vehicle?

Please check my other posts, I'm familiar with how to embed photos. I did the URL-only deliberately, since they were hosted on Facebook.

None that I could find. I think someone was watching too much SPACE 1999 on 3CP1 TV.

It appears to be a variant of a BTS-4 ARV.  Speculation online is that particular snorkel attachment was for use in recovering wrecks in harbors. Just drive up to whatever you want to bring to the surface and pump it full of air from a surface auxiliary air tank and try to dislodge it from the seabed, either floating it to the surface where a recovery boat would be waiting or attaching lines to drag it out of the water.
All hail the God of Frustration!!!

Forget about his bow and arrows- why wait until that sparrow has done his deed when I can just bury him right now 'cause I'm sick and tired of hearing why he wants to have his way with the cock robin!?
