Standard......maybe........ but that's a Beaverette III and those are twin Vickers K's


For the mark III, a turret was added to the top of an enclosed cabin. There were two types of turret:

  • an enclosed turret, which must have made the operation of the Bren machine gun, through a narrow slot, very difficult, if not impossible. to fire.
  • an open turret, when a larger twin Vickers machine gun was fitted, so the gunner was exposed, but with more freedom to manouvre.
