I would be pissed if a heap of money/effort was spent on the vehicle but then I was only given a long ladder to enter/exit...

Agreed but they ran out of money in the budget. It was supposed to be an escalator.  You're lucky it wasn't a rope ladder.

That's probably the "Aw ****!" exit for when everything breaks down and power is off.

Questions:
 - Why would you build such a large target?
I might suggest that this is the equivalent of a coastal artillery piece, i.e. more artillery than a tactical combat weapon. It certainly matches the aesthetic of a more long range, less exposed piece than a tank or APC.

Could be a ground-based orbital defence weapon sort of thing.

Sure, that sort of thing.
