It's supposed to function as a camera/FLIR/laser designator in Macross/Robotech. To make it look more real-world, I guess you can make it look like the TRAM sensor on the A-6E Intruder.
Random fact: when Matchbox was developing that toy, they originally intended it to transform, which is why the leg, some hinges, and the legs are able to move downwards. My memory is kind of rusty but since Hasbro was using the 1/55 VF-1 Valkyrie mold borrowed by Bandai/Matsushiro, for release in the US, Matchbox was not able to go ahead with making their VF-1 Veritech transformable.
