What Planet Did This Tank Came From?

Illustration for article titled What Planet Did This Tank Came From?

There are no details of this tank, which could be from the Soviet Era. The picture finder says that some people suggested is a fog/smoke generator but, for its looks, it could be an armored antimatter cannon. [Updated: Target identified]


Why a smoke/fog generator? The finder says it could be a water cannon for "burning oil wells", but it may as well be a flamethrower. Whatever it is, it looks very menacing. Any idea of what this thing really? If you have any clue, tell us in the comments. [DRB]

Update: According to reader Adrian Pendzich, it's a Soviet Progvev-T, a gas-dynamic minesweeper. This 37-tons beast was a T-54 tank base and a MiG-15 jet engine on top. The trawler had also a container with kerosene that allowed to clear 6 kilometers of road without refueling. Apparently, this dragon used the MiG-15 engine to uncover and destroy mines with heat.

I'm flabbergasted. [Thanks Adrian!]
