The inspiration for Astra Militarum's Taurox

When I saw Warhammer 40,000 Astra Militarum's Taurox vehicle I thought it was a custom mix half-buggy half-tank thought from scratch...

But it looks it's based on the MRAP concept (Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle):

Of course it has tank tracks instead of wheels, and MARPs are not just one specific design but a grouping of similar armoured anti-explosive vehicles (at the Wikipedia link there are a dozen more photos), but the similarities are abundant.
