I have a question about the Type 87 Reconnaissance and Patrol Vehicle. The image below shows there to be an area of non-slip coating on the upper nose of the vehicle. Is there any information about the other areas that are covered in non-slip coating? I am guessing that the top of the turret and possibly the area over the radio operator are possibilities.

I am guessing that the radio operator is the crewman that is in the side of the hull behind the turret and beside the engine compartment. This is based on the commander and gunner being in the turret and the driver and possibly the observer being in the front hull.

Thanks in advance for any help that you may be able to give.
