Here' s a period image of a similar one (also note wiring/plug/throatmic for LW communications) but with leather sausages added.
I love this kind of stuff!
Could have been taken from a manufacturing facility or more likely from a captured (overrun) Luftwaffe airbase and converted for RKKA armor use!

Makes sense too! Czechoslovakian conversion could be an explanation too! They had a lot of left-over German gear... Who knows?
The picture on the other hand is war time RKKA I believe...
