These are really improvised mounts...

Didn't the early M60 cupola have this mount until the M85 came into service?

These were improvised mounts added to some Magachs during the '73 war. Using, looks to be 1/4" plate or so, welded to the cupola and a pintle mount welded to the plate.

Dang Florencio, those are some great images of the field applied mount. "Tanks" for posting them up. You need to bring them to a ZSM meeting in the near future.
