Default Drive wheel/sprocket question

Could anyone tell me which vehicle this drive wheel is
from? The picture is of a prototype munition / troop carrier.

That is the Auto Union/MAN prototype. It was not used on any other vehicle, and only one running test vehicle was built.

Thank you for your replies gentleman. I had come to a similar conclusion
regarding the PzKpfw II Ausf L “Luchs”, it looked like the Luchs drive wheel
but had never thought it could be a prototype drive wheel.

While I wish I was working on a 1:1 build I'm thinking of doing a 1:18 version.

Thanks for the help guys!
