modern German cross

modern dual pad tracks with center guide horn
(Diehl 570 similar to Leopard, Abrams, Ariete, LeClerc)

looks like the Rheinmetall 120mm L44 gun

only 5 road wheels ?

Based on the shape of the glacis and 5 road wheels, it
could have been a variant of the Jaguar
or the JPZ4-5 Jagdpanzer Kanone
However, the Jagdpanzer Kanone did not use dual pad tracks.

I could not find any other info.
