What Is This?

Please, can somebody tell me what the hell is this green thing parked in a Russian airfield? Who built this nutty contraption?

Apparently, some crazy vodka-addicted Russian engineers/mechanics/crazy Ivans decided that putting together a Soviet-era truck, a gas tank, a top cockpit, and a jet turbine was something useful. Or funny. Or both. What the frak does this thing really do? What is its purpose? Apparently nobody knows. And, most probably, we will never know.

I guess I'd have to hunt this one down, and press the big red button. [Dark Roasted Blend]
