Armored Car T17E2 Staghound AA.

The T17E2, or Staghound AA to the British, was similar to the T17E1; the 37mm gun turret was replaced by the open-topped twin .50cal turret. The radio, which had resided in the 37mm turret bustle, was relocated to the hull front right corner and thus elminiated the bow MG. The flat turret sides mark this as an early production vehicle; later production cars had turrets with curved sides. (Picture from Catalogue of Standard Ordnance Items, 2nd edition 1944, volume 1.)

Armored Car T17E2 Staghound AA.

This is a later-production car with curved sides on the turret. Some details of the gunner's position can be gleaned from this top-down view. There is a sighting ring attached to the braces running across the turret. (Picture from Development of Armored Vehicles, volume II: Armored Cars, Scout Cars, and Personnel Carriers.)
