The turret design learned from the earlier panzers in that the trunnions are internally protected. Also, the recoil mechanism is not on the sides of the gun, allowing a narrowing of the turret face. Ammunition in the turret is not a great idea, but it appears to have some internal plates that show brackets at the top. The (H) is much better IMO.
