This is model NSF23 from Irregular's 6mm sci-fi line. link

They don't have a picture of it, so I assembled one and took a photo:

NSF23

This vehicle has wheels so wide they look like rollers, three on each side. There is a gun/railing thing on the left front, and a gun (separate piece) in a "tower."

They call it an "attack vehicle," and I presume it works in conjunction with NSF21 (a larger, eight-wheeled MBT in the same style).

I'm going to first imagine it as some kind of APC. (Where do the troops debark? Maybe the curved front hull turns into a ramp? Might be double-doors on the rear hull…)

The hull gun looks to me like it could be MDC, but you'd have to spring for fusion power to have any reasonable size gun. Maybe just an autocannon? The tower gun could be another autocannon, maybe just APSW, maybe Local Air Defense?

Or, forget the troops, make it an air-defense vehicle?

Or, give it fusion power, and load it for weapons as a pure "attack" vehicle?

Or, finally, let's assume the large round "thing" on the hull rear is a hatch, and this thing carries a RAM mortar.
