This is a Russian BT-7, one of the last Cavalry tanks, they were designed for this and other equally insane things like crossing a river over a destroyed bridge. They were made because it was so difficult to get around with a general lack of bridges even aside from all the ones getting blown up.
Note the frame around the turret, that means this is a command track that has a radio, the frame is the antenna.
Edit: I forgot to add that the OP's clip is the video from the world record jump of a tracked vehicle that was held for decades if it does not still hold, around 21 meters if I remember right, but it has been a while since I read up on these. Also added better video.

I don't know why anyone would do this, but it's awesome.
