This was recently debuted, it seems similar to the FBS slide concept,

Ammo capacity is listed as 40/72 rounds, presumably 120mm/81mm.

Indeed.  One might say it's almost identical.  Scorpion Mobile Mortar System 81/120mm

The SSD article confirms that round count. 

As does the video posted in the SSD article.

However, those numbers are for this truck.

Note that the GMP mortar system on the Infantry Squad Vehicle can carry only 48 rounds of 81mm, far short of the 69 rounds specified in the Future BMS slide. 

And in the same stowage space on the ISV, a mere 30 rounds of 120mm could be carried.
