It is certainly based on older technology. Many of the parts are the same as used on the T-72, T-80, and T-90 MBT. The tread chassis is based on one from the 2S7 Pion 203 mm self-propelled gun.

Interestingly enough, the improved S-400 and the almost ready S-500 are both wheeled designs based on several truck chassis, with different ones for the command center, radars, TELs, and reloaders. These missile batteries are used for long range air defense, including ICBMs and anti-satellite.

If you wanted to use US military vehicles, you could build vehicles similar to the S-400 using HEMMTs. I can't find one, but you could build a 13 tonne module to put on the back easy enough.
