So, two MGs or light cannons (no bigger than 37mm) aft and a big gun (I assume a ~75mm) in an armored turret forward?

The big gun was typically 140mm and the aft cannons were 47mm.

Ouch, that will make an impression on the Huns!

Might cause some headaches for fish in the river too… Perhaps even result in options for the dinner table.
