Soviet NI (Na Ispug, “for fear”) tank, assembled in Odessa in 1941 in lieu of having real tanks. Basically, a tractor with guns and armour welded on. Moved slowly but made a lot of noise, which scared the Germans. Possibly the most hilarious tank short of the multi-turret ones.
This one had its gun stolen, probably to sell for scrap metal.

    Armored tractors are still very common.I`d imagine in some poorer counties they might still try this trick also.Good luck with it!

    Can’t imagine this did much against Panzer IIIs.
