Hi Vlad,
Thanks for your comment.
Checked the wikipedia-data before posting and I can't see any stealth cupola/gun mount. It indeed looks like the "good old" 76mm gun mount.

Great photo, Roy, and great additional information by wartsilasulzer, too!

One thing that I've noticed: rather than mounting a "stealth cupola", that looks pretty much like "run of the mill" 76 gun "trademark" Oto Melara cupola that has been around for 50 or so years...
