I remember the days when some US Army airfields in Germany had PSP (perforated steel planks) runways.

But what exactly is it made of?

I can´t even imagine the vibrations an aircraft operating there could bear. Looks safe but no smooth at all. Well captured!

Cool. Reminds me of the Tintin adventure, "Flight 714"

I think they are steel bars to slow aircraft down

This reminds me of something out of a James Bond movie. Flip a switch back at the evil lair and it turns into a wheat field.

Tintin was the first thing in my mind too. It was more similar to Marsden Matting though. This steel mat was different texture.
I bet rugged Russian planes take this kind of bumpyness easily.
