Hey Alex, the Chinese have a custom version of ares in which they have implemented an AMAZING feature, which in my opinion is more significant than other small scale changes.
Can you implement this ? It would greatly benefit all mods

More Turrets and weapons per unit:

From what I understand it's unlikely, it's been made "closed source" against the ARES license agreement, and even if Alex just copied the code, I doubt the original coder would support or fix it if a future feature broke it.

Shouldn't be hard for Alex to add this.
My suggestion would be to add a key to show/render the Passengers of an OpenTopped unit (similar how the carryall still shows the passenger).

Since OpenTopped allows already to use vehicles, all it then needs is a dummy tank unit, where the chassis looks like a turret. Add this "turret" via InitialPayload and use AlternateFLH to define the turret places on the main unit.

Render layers might be a bitch though. Especially when you have multiple "turrets" on a ship with a high superstructure, where you want the turrets to be rendered behind the superstructure but on top of the deck.

Could make for some interesting tank bunker-esque logic.

I suggested the same thing last week #Tongue and Alex said he's not this is the best way to go.
To keep consistency, fake turret should be always rendered on top of the body as this is the default rendering order for all VehicleTypes.
