This is the Irrational Designs model, via Shapeways.

Terran Main battle Tank

Looks like a Class 4 (large) vehicle to me.

The "oval" gun probably isn't an autocannon or high-velocity cannon, and is too large to be MDC or HKP, and lasers don't need long barrels… so I went with DFFG.

The other weapons are the rocket pack on the turret top, the machinegun turret on the main turret rear, and the machinegun in the forward hull.

I didn't know what the "strapped on tubes" on the turret side were, so made them targeting systems.

A nice Von Luckner proxy:

That looks as though someone was trying to include just enough difference to avoid an obvious copyright violation.

The irony is, this designer did all the vehicles used in the aborted FASA/Microsoft Mechwarrior RTS game . . .

for a sample.

I never did like that pup-tent missile rack on the Von Luckner anyway…
