That mini tank is a prototype. It's intended to be used for crowd control in the case of riots. The short pipes at the front are smoke grenade launchers, just some off the shelf parts shared with MBT's. The launchers at the sides are teargas guns. I'm not sure about gun mounted at the top, but it looks like a high caliber gun for rubber bullets.
