BTW, here is a photo of the sole Ram Gun Tractor with QF 3.7-Inch (94mm) Heavy AA Gun:
Dayum! Have never seen that photo of the Ram GT before. Bloody nice find!

Can get a limited idea of what the rear fighting compartment and engine deck layout was!

Ta! Had seen most of these before, but two new ones: in the left 2nd row and the bottom right. Also these are obviously at two different stages in the development.

Will have to go through the Ram development book and see if it speaks to these being one hull or two and if these are converted (deconstructed) actual Rams or incomplete Ram lower hulls pulled from production before being assigned serial numbers and bought especially for this program.

That's supposedly the only photo of that conversion too.  Here is a profile to give people a better idea of the appearance:

Cheers! For some reason, that PLA Sherman had to be combined with the Ram Gun Tractor ...

An M51 Super Sherman modified to look like a WW2 Sherman

Might be more appropriate for a "Korean War / Cold War goes hot (1949-1959)" build up.
