Looks like something they would use on some people protesting.... A new toy for police.

Really though, I'm not sure what it is.

It looks like a new version of the Pantsyr-S1 air defence system (Pantsyr-C1 maybe going by the -C1 on the display board)

It looks like ZSU on wheels but a ZSU doesnt have missiles on it, so it could be a total ZSU conversion to wheels and having missiles/ rockets

I think the passing similarity to some of the creatures of the Apocalypse is just a coincidence.

It looks like an upgraded LMTV (Light Medium Tactical Vehicle), modified for heavier loads, as is obvious becaue of the stabilisers on the back. I'll agree with the ZSU aspect, also it has an anti air radar along with Ground to Air rockets. Making it a mobile anti air defense platform worth field testing.

Not a completely unique concept, but it is feasable and probably cost effective enough to convert the older LMTVs from troop and supply, to the above incarnation.

It gets
for useing resources at hand.
