This is model NSF21 from Irregular's 6mm sci-fi line: link

There's no photo of it in the catalog, so I snapped this shot:

NSF21

This seems to be a companion model to NSF23, the Attack Vehicle. Both are on "roller" wheels (extra-wide wheels) – this vehicle has four on a side.

This is a hefty vehicle – 33mm in length, 19mm in height. It somewhat resembles a Bradley IFV, but several times the size! There are four "headlights" on what I presume is the front, and a curious triangular structure on the top of the hull on the front (sort of looks like it could fold back into the hull). Some blocks on the side might be an anti-personnel belt.

The turret is loaded with weapons: a thin-barreled main gun, a short coaxial gun, what looks like a mini-turret for a machinegun, two side pods that could be missiles or maybe laser weapons, and a rack on the back for five rockets/missiles.

One approach…

Surprisingly, you can get almost the same results by dropping the MDC to class 2, and downgrading from fusion to chemical fueled…

It is too busy, you end up with a lot of ineffective weapons , of which you can fire one…

I would go with a bigger gun in the turret and a GMS/L . If you call the main gun a class 5 ( 15 capacity + 2 for the GMSL) you could call the bits on the side of the hull smoke dischargers or range finders or something. Or make the gun a class 4 and call the rockets a class 3 SLAM pack (4x3 + 3x2 capacity) .

Agreed. DS2 really doesn't work for multiple weapons, though multiple *mounts* are useful at times. I've seen homebrew rules for adding in Fire Controls Systems, but they are justifiably expensive.
