On the actual tank there are two doors. One with 3 rounds that point towards the front, and one with 3 rounds that point to the rear. To get to one you would need to be at 10-11 o'clock (yes), but to get to the other you will need to be about  7-8 o'clock, so we split the difference at 9 o'clock so we just have one orientation.

7-8 ? Wouldn't that put the main gun over the back deck? Sorry maybe I'm just misreading it. Also the rounds are side by side but requires separate doors to open. So left door first, pull 3 rounds and then close left door. Open right door and then pull 3 rounds. Yes the Turret does have to rotate alittle between the 2 but not that much

Yep, probably remembering it wrong, I think the two doors are side by side, right rear of hull, facing towards the rear. Looking in the manual it seems to be about 10 o'clock to access to through the loader's safety guard door. Still, we are talking about a difference of 1 o'clock, so not quite priority at the moment.

Ok thank you guys for checking into this. Appreciate it 👍
