Hull Bow

3 Part question on WW2 Tank Hull/bow Gunners.?

1) Did WW2 hull gunners in tanks such as the M4 Medium, have vents (Like in turrets) to get rid of smoke/fumes?
2) I would like to know if any Allied Tanks such as the A27 Cromwell used a sight (next to the MG in the ball) for aiming the hull/bow machine gun, or did most hull gunners use their vision periscope and walk the gun on target like the Sentinel and M4 Medium Tanks?
3) Lastly how often did M1919 A4 and M2 Browning machine guns need their barrels changed and how was this done and how hard was it to do in a WW2 tank?
I guess you would get a few more rounds in than an MG 42 machine gun, barrel change after 250 rounds, that's crazy. Cheers John.

1. The sherman had reverse flow fans in the turret to draw out flumes from the main gun and
coaxial and bow guns.
2. the sherman used a panoramic sight in bow machine which allowed the gunner/radio man a
180 degree Field of View.
3. A good gunner would not have to change barrels very often,as you never fired long bursts,as
for the M1919A4,the gunner pulled the gun back into his compartment and changed out the barrel
he had a gun stand in the compartment for that purpose,the M2 barrel was changed out with the
gun in its mount as it changed today,checking timing and head space.
