The video promotes the trams made at a plant that is a subsidiary of Roscosmos, Russia’s state-owned equivalent of NASA.
A new tram made by the Ust-Katav Wagon-Building Plant in Russia was bizarrely unveiled on social media recently.
The video in question shows a tram fitted with rocket engines descending from space and executing a perfect landing on tramway tracks in a city before transforming into...well, a tram.
The space theme is probably due to the fact that the manufacturing plant promoted in the video is a subsidiary of Roscosmos, Russia’s state-owned corporation responsible for the country’s space programme.
“Space quality mark,” a voice at the end of the video says.
