The missile is known as FROG (Free Rocket Over Ground), and was similar in concept to Honest John.

FROG-7 (in the Soviet system known as LUNA). Unguided, single-stage, spin-stabilised with a range of 70km. It had a 550 kg Warhead. The impact area was approximately 2.8 km long by 1.8 km wide. The FROG-7 is capable of delivering HE, nuclear, or chemical warheads.

I think the prime mover may well be a BAZ-135L4 8x8 10000 Kg truck. Power came from 2 x Zil V8 petrol engines with a hydro-mechanical gearbox.
Also know as the ZIL 135 these 8x8 trucks were introduced in 1960's and were used for both civil and military purposes the latter included the launcher/transporter for the FROG-7 SSM.
BAZ - Bryansk Avto Zavod, in English AV means vehicle works.
This information was extracted from the 1981 edition of Janes Pocket Book of Modern Military Vehicles.
