Are you referring to the commanders Mg? Although it
on the turret it is completely separate and can
operate 360 degrees.
It is an internal weapon since after WW II on all US
(M48/M60/M1) which improves the chances of survival
for the tank commander over the exposed mounts of
tanks (Grant tank of WWII had internal Commander Mg
lots of other problems)
