From another forum:

M48 Pillbox

Interesting setup. (I wonder what that does to the turret drives?) Looks like it might make a good topic for a dio.

Heh heh - COOL!

I wonder too what that kind of overloading would do to the Turret Rollers & Drive. The 1:1 scale tankers out there would have to enlighten us

I thought you would like that, Gunny. Somehow, I suspect that we may see a tank in your future...

Turret turns like a great big gear. There is a turret traverse motor, the weight of the sandbags wiould not have much effect on the turret.
