back on the table and ready to be finished off, diorama base with the long long gun muzzle grounded into rising ground, in an "oh F.. Dear me* moment.

thinking through my Diorama Idea, with a long gun on a short vehicle, undulating terrain could prove to be a problem, with the angle of the vehicle precipitating the muzzle into rising ground, is that a fair Diorama?

Knock out a few more Panhards and display them parked up outside the Globe (Port Stanley 1982) surround by the discarded Argie kit ). (Parts various being nicked by the Para's).

Ground appreciation, the crew would elevate the gun or traverse it over the side or back decks at the obstacle.

edit...
Chieftain advancing through a forest, the commander may traverse the gun through the desired gap in the trees before the tank started to turn.
(some trees may have been harmed during this)

Or in a village or junction the turret would turn before the tank to avoid taking out the oncoming traffic or someone's Laura Ashley's curtains.
