Tank in hull-down position

It is a fire position for a tank where the barrel and upper part of the turret is visible from the front, i.e., everything from the 'hull down' is protected behind cover.

In this position the hull and running gear are concealed, but the turret above the gun trunnions, usually the best protected aspect of the tank, is exposed.
