This image shows the detail of the oscillating turret fitted to the AMX 13 Light tank.
This type of turret is used in place of the standard way of elevating the main armament, which raises the gun within a mantlet.
With this method (of elevation) the whole turret is tilted up or down, which restricts very high gun elevation.
Seen at the Musee des Blindes, Saumur, France in June 2018.
