The Voroshilovets, the Komintern, and the Stalinets S65 could all tow the B4. There were some lend-lease tractors that might have pulled it too, I would imagine.

Just a few period pics for inspiration :

Voroshilovets :





Komintern :



S-65 :











S-60 tractors in the background ( a 1/35 one has been released by Thunder models) :



Lend-Lease US-made crawler tractors like the Caterpillar D7 could be used as well....
