An ammunition handling system for use in a military tank to provide for storage of individual ammunition rounds and automatic transfer thereof to the tank main gun when necessary. The rounds are stored in protected positions within the hull remote from the gun. Transfer of individual rounds to the gun is effected through a rotary carousel located beneath the tank basket. The carousel moves independently of the basket to deliver rounds into the basket in any position the gun can be reloaded without returning to a fixed load position. Author
