Can anybody tell me what this is ? and how it is attached to the dome.
My guess is that it is a counter weight to make rotation of the turret easier.
Aperantly is was to counter balance the drag created by the gun.
Any idea how it was attached … was it bolted straight to the dome or had it some fixture inside ?
It looks like it is attached to the turret ring. Don’t know if it’s bolted or welded.
