Hi.

The following armour storages were placed in the hull:

Pic 1:
left side of the tank. On top vertical ammo racks, below MG magazine box

Pic 2:
right side of the tank. Three different inclined racks, some more than in your drawing.

Pic 3:
front side of the tank. On the right the drivers seat, on the left the gunner/technician seat. Left of the gearbox a MG magazine storage

Additional ammunition could be stored behind the bow gunner/technician next to the drive shaft in the floor below covering plates.

A maximum of 119 37 mm grenades and 2940 6,5 mm or 7,7 mm bullets in 147 20-shot-magazines could be loaded.

Yours

tom! ;)
