The turret was fixed and not rotatable, the turret weight was about 10 or 20 tons but I have to check that.
Indeed only the Bohler was to be mounted but that was not a problem, the AT guns that were to be bought and used by the Dutch Army were the Bohler.
Some other AT guns were tested but the Bohler was the best possible (others were the Boxman and at least Rheinmetall and I also remember seing drawings of the 2Pdr Vickers).
I can imagen it was not easy to get the Bohler out of the casemate, so even when the weapon was mobile it was not a matter of seconds to get it out and put in an open position to repel a attack from the side or rear, I have not seen any drawings what the standard layout of a position should look like.
