The BTS (Bronetankoviy Tyagach Sredniy) was a Soviet armored tractor that was also used as a recovery vehicle. They are based mostly on the T-54 chassis, though there are others that used the T-55 as well as some T-62 chassis. There have been variants of the BTS having distinct features such as a stowage basket (BTS-1), 3-ton crane (BTS-2), snorkel (BTS-4), and even a dozer blade (BTS-4B)

I guess you could even replace the snorkel tube with something more lethal... Ukrainian Army BTS-4 with ZU-23-2 anti-aircraft gun in Donbass : H.P.
