Turret Details

Interior view facing forward, shows how the gunner entered the turret. Ammunition feed chutes lead under the turret seat. The gunner sat in the ball with his knees literally at his elbows, with his right foot on the gunsight range pedal. The Navy fitted this turret with the Mk. 18 gunsight.
