The pictures are neigher located nor dated. The trike is fitted with unusually big low-pressure tires and manned by two soldiers. No technical detail is aailable; As this apparently amateur-built vehicle is armed with a machine gun, we may assume it would be assigned to patrol missions, as no other useful operational role appears obvious.

Due to the abundant marshy areas spread in Siberia and other Russian regions, as well as the heavily snowed countryside in Winter, the Russian company Sokol was displaying an impressive quad at Army 2018 forum near Kubinka. The use of (very) big low-pressure tires might have influenced the design of the Belarusian trike.
