What are the turrets like on humvees? The ones that actually spin around, not just a gun on a bi-pod bolted to the roof.
Also on armoured vehicles, how do they get their heads out of the hatch? Does the seat just move up and down? When ever I see pictures it looks like it would be too hight to reach your head out. I've always wondered how they do it.
on a humvee the turret is a ring bolted onto the roof of the chassis, so you can swivel around. on armored vehicles, to get your head out of the hatch you just sit up or stand up. i'm not too familiar with the TC's seat on an abrams, but on the loader side you can just stand up on somethin. you try not to stand up past your nametag most of the time, regardless of how cool it looks on pics or visibility issues, mainly for safety concerns.
