Then it is likely an "official" mod - as I understood it, the loader's hatch was in field conditions covered by add-on armor in such a way it was permanently shut, but the pic I am talking about (ah, found the thread: http://208.84.116.223/forums/index.php?showtopic=26241).

ok. that is an official mod probably. note the rifle rack on the side that means the loader is supposed to put it there. what that means is the tank was modified so the hatch can be opened. there is however, no 7.62 on the loaders side(or a mount fot that matter), so still only the coax and commanders MGs.
Thats cool, havent seen that yet.

IIRC The Roof mounted seat is for instructors during training Exercises.
