A British test pilot with AIRCO, Capt. B.C. Huck, developed a practical apparatus mounted on a truxck. These vehicle systems became known as "Huck Starters". The National Museum of the United States Air Force displays this Ford-mounted Huck starter truck.

Interesting, looks like you could convert one of the GAZ kits to make one.

Should not be a hard conversion from a Gaz truck since Gaz has its roots in the factories that Ford built in the CCCP
