Any APC Spotters Identify This Vehicle?

#1
Can anyone identify this vehicle. It's the same vehicle described by Bruce Parry in Arctic as being the 'community tank'.

At first I though it was a GAZ-71 but there are marked differences unless it's an early version.

Anyone any ideas?

Are you sure its standard? It might be modified for civvi use perhaps?
Although I've never seen a GAZ-71 in the flesh.

Saw one like it in a documentary about mammoth diggers in Siberia, civi version of GAZ71, used all over the cold and wet bits of old USSR and still in use today. Very effective and the one in the doccie had a caravan type body on the back.
