PT-76 based launcher for the FROG-2 ('Mars') missile. Apparently these were later converted into WPT-76 armored recovery vehicles.

The only photo I've found of it so far:

FROG 5,3 and 4 (NATO codename) unguided rocket on modified PT 76 tank chassis , comparable to US Honest John.,range of missile 16 miles...not FROG 2..it was mounted on a heavier chassis

My mistake, the FROG-2 is clearly different in shape compared to the missile shown. Anyhow, would the chassis also have been built by LKZ, like the other PT-76 on the site?

The 3R10 Luna-2, NATO-Code Frog-5, introduced in 1963, used the LKZ 2P16 Launcher Vehicle, which was based on the PT-76. The same vehicle was also used for the nearly similar 3R9 Luna (FROG-3) and 3R9 Luna-1 (FROG-4) from 1961.
