They also use those for de-icing runways.

The Russian/Soviet army used something similar for decontaminating armored vehicles. MiG-17 engine mounted on the bed of a truck, spraying decontamination slurry. You'd run your contaminated T-72 between two of them.

Those engines look to be a tad bit larger than VK-1 (MiG-15), or VK-1A (MiG-17) jet engines. If scale is correct, the engines from a bomber, perhaps the TU-16, or the transport derivitive are perhaps the source. If actually from a MiG, then the earlier MiG-25 might be the donor. Then again there is always photoshopping. 8-)

Edit: I've stood next to the aft ends of the MiG-15, MiG-17 and the MiG-21, and thusly have a good idea how large they are, and the nozzles on that tank appear to be far larger in diameter. /Edit.

I've heard that they use old "condemned for flight" Mig-21 engines for jobs like this. That chassis looks like part of a T-34,....(Edit: yup, that's what it is.)
