Here is a postcard (from the 1930s?) of a US M2A2 or -A3 (A3 had thicker armor, I don't know which this is) from the front.  The hull mounted machine gun is a .50 calibre while the two turret-mounted weapons are .30 calibre machine guns.  The turrets had 270-degree rotation coverage and it really shows that the driver and machine-gunner were either rather exposed or rather blind with this front.
