Gun is mounted in the armored turret with camouflage covering of fiberglass. Gun's barrel has the original water-cooling system, because the system has a very high rate of fire - 40 rounds / min. It is looks like a machine gun. The picture shows a pipe alongside of the barrel, for heated water in a shooting. Used cartridge cases extracted through a special hatch in the back of the turret.
