Might be a bit too tall for the turret, but it sure looks like it.

Did the M48 and/or M60 TC cupola counter-rotate against the turret? They both had power traverse, correct?

They had power for some electrical connections but traverse was manual.

Only the cupola of the M60A2 was powered, and yes it could counter rotate.

Tighten or loosen, either way that is some serious foot pounds.
