Can someone explain me, why sometimes, in tank colums, tanks have their turrets rotated 360 degrees, backward? Like in this pic.

I guess because the turret is positioned more to the front, and if its facing 180 degrees, your saving more space on the front, and the column can be tighter.

if the guy sneezes and accidently hits the fire button.. I'd like the turret facing away from the other tanks

I've heard having the turret backward shifts the CG closer to the center of the tank and thus put less stress on the suspension.

it can also mean that the driver has his hatch open,something that the fornt armor doesnt allow him to do unless the turrent is backwards.
