Talking about “Nancy” and other Quad 50’s guntrucks, I’ve always wondered if the mount included in AFV Club kit is accurate for Vietnam. The AFV Club mount is the WW2 one, like this trailer mounted unit (M55) :

The generator engine is different, and so is its fuel tank. In most pics I’ve seen, there’s also a (electric ?) box that looks similar to a 20mm ammo box size-wise fitted above the engine :
Sometimes this box is mounted longitudinally :
Soooo, in other words, was the WW2-style mount used in Vietnam ?
