I know this has been discussed before. But here are my ideas on this topic.So the system works by having a few different kinds of mountings on the vehicle, Mounted guns will have better accuracy however Seating space shall be reduced in accordance with the size of the mounting. please note that pistols cannot be mounted.
1. TYPE 1 MOUNTING: This mount will be forward facing and with the field of ire of 120 degrees, with the ability to pivot the Gun Up and Down. You can mount this on most vehicles. This mount can only accept small weapons upto Light macine Guns (m249, Negev) but nothing bigger and no rocket launchers, this mounting will result in a penalty of 2 seats(except in pickup trucks). In order to mount this mount to function a hole will be made in the roof of the vehicle(only if required). It can also work on small boats and on Airplanes like the Sandpiper (although only in a backward defensive mounting)
2.TYPE 2 MOUNTING: This mount involves a mounting similar to those seen on “technicals” and the Warthog from Halo and can move 360 degrees. This mounting results in a loss of 4 seats , and this is only possible on pickup trucks or vehicles with a flat bed to the back of the vehicle. This mounting can accept heavy and medium machine guns and Rocket launchers. This works only on medium sized boats and upwards
3.TYPE 3 MOUNTING: This is similar to the mounting on a Humvee, This mounting can move 360 degrees and can accept all weapons. However the mounting an only be done on vehicles with roofs like SUVs, Sedans, Vans etc. This arrangement will incur a penalty of 4 seats as well. This works on Medium sized boats and upwards. These can be placed on planes similary to the top turret of B17 flying foretresses.
4.TYPE 4 MOUNTING: This is a Quad mount as seen on the WW2 halftrack variant. It can only be Mounted on large flatbed Trucks and can Accept any and all Weapons, The mount can also move 360 degrees.
5.TYPE 5 MOUNTING: This is for aircraft Door postions, It can take any weapon and has a space penalty of 2 seats. Additionally this is possible for large aircraft like the annushka, where similar mountings can be be made.
These mounting can be additionally upgraded with armor plates and sights however these will make the mounts movement speed slow. In order to counteract this and electric motor is necessary which makes the vehicle consume more fuel.
