I am looking for reference images of the fording gear (exhaust extensions and the Commander's conning tower) mounted on the JGSDF Type 74. I had found some years ago but can't remember where for the life of me.

It appears when the tanks are prepared for fording the .50 Cal is removed, the searchlight is removed, the tow cables are repositioned to the top of the turret for recovery purposes, and the plugs are in place on the barrel muzzle and the mantlet.

Is anything else added or removed to prepare the tanks for fording?

Thank you in advance.
