The largest multi-barreled rotary cannon was the 47 mm Hotchkiss, if memory serves - but it was hand cranked, purely mechanical weapon. A bit more data here: https://www.forgottenweapons.com/manual-machine-guns/hotchkiss-revolving-cannon/

(Interesting revelation - Hotchkiss evidently made them as large as 53 mm according to the link. )

With the soon to be available LVT(H)-6 kit it would appear that by swapping out the turret with that of an M42 Duster you can also have an SPAAG version of the LVT(P)-5/LVT(H)-6.  :)

Thanks Guy.  OK, so it's an amphibian but how is it powered in the water? The tracks don't seem to have paddles on the track links like on the Buffalo amphib'

What are those circular plates that look like return rollers over the main wheels? Are they for cleaning mud off the wheels?

It's an LVTP 5. In service in from 1950s onwards. Used by USMC and Philippine marines. The AD version was prototyped  only. I think they were used at the Danang landings. Ive got the afv Kit its a big one.

It's based on the LTV-5;

The vehicle tracks were made with inverted grousers which propelled the LVTP5 in the water and also served as center guide teeth.

Had to look that one up. Interesting, especially the engine location - don't often think of AFV's as "mid-engined" vehicles.
