A propriatary plywood G.I. credenza.
Slot for a shelf, lock-open bars on the lid, I think this would be for storage, transportation and utilization of something like communications equipment. When put into operation at a Tactical Operations Center in the field, it would be placed latch-side down on a folding table or something, the lid locked open and then cables could be run through the doors in the back (formerly the bottom) to the equipment resting on the shelves. Then you get out your folding chair, plug in your microphone headset, then sit in front of it and try to look alert enough that you don't catch any heat from the major.
OR, I could be full of crap and the little doors are for reaching out donuts.
No, I've never seen one either.
