Hi Markus,
The picture is from "Frontovaya Illustraciya" magazine which is notorious with its wrong captions.
If it is GAZ, it might have been one-off. Could be GAZ, I agree, but the Japanese weren't away so it could be captured Japanese vehicle also. At least the number plate isn't Russian, civilian and military either. True, Japanese it isn't too.
Again, I'm ready to agree it is GAZ but the picture still raises questions. Here it is, from the magazine and with the original captions:

By far it is yet another beautiful example of the usual setup "Idiots hide as many details as they can". Nevertheless, note the bus, or whatever it is, is nailed as GAZ-AA. But why not GAZ-AAA, may I ask? Can you see a single rear axle there because I can't?
BTW, isn't the triangle on the left fender of the bus we try to ID a French tactical sign?
Cheers!

My theory is that the caption composer rationalised that on a GAZ-AAA based staff bus there would not be enough running board for four normal-built detail hiding idiots to sit on side by side.

Good guess, but I'm afraid the running boards of both 05-193 and 03-30 (and their permutations) with doors closed aren't much suitable for bench even for a single idiot.
Apparently all these are sitting on something in front of the running board.
Judge for yourself:

Indeed, there are also some bus and van variants with running borads but they aren't enough for 4 men, as slim as they may be:

The 1313 and 1314 looks like T-37 amphibious tank in "cabrio" version. Was it original Soviet output or German conversion?

Hi Korup
I've never seen this version in any book about Russian tanks. So I think it is
a German conversion. But I stand to be corrected.

Here some more pictures of turretless tanks used as tractors in German use.

Hi Korup
no need to apologize. Do you know the web-site Beutepanzer.ru?
There you can find many pictures and information of Beutepanzer
in German use from many nations.

Armin
