The bonus should be variable and it should be affected by the same stuff that affect vehicles IRL, for example a T72 should recieve a lower bonus than an Abrams, since its gun doesnt have such a low depression value...
I think alot of what you ask for is already modeled very well in the game.
A moving AFV will not get the full benefit of the terrian it is in when firing on the move there calculations like: how fast,elevation ect.
A stationary AFV gets some terrian benefit the turn after it stops moving,and increases if it stays still.
A hull down position is if the enemy unit can't get a hit on the hull,this can happen if you are in tall grass or in a depression or rough and have not moved for at least 1 turn.
You have to carefull when cresting a hill/ridge on the reverse slope though as that exposes the weaker under belly of the hull.
