Worth noting that it was common for most WWII tanks to have the coaxial MG be removable by the crew in the field and a tripod provided so it could be operated from the tank. I think this was most common in American and German tanks.
We had a field kit to add a stock to our, not the best GPMG as no sights. But if the tank was knocked out better than nothing four man crew would have two M240, one M16, and four Pistols.
