Have the gunner refund a portion of the cost to the owner when they get in. Fairness/complexity could be implemented with a more complex deposit scheme with the last driver/gunner in the vehicle before it despawns/is destroyed ultimately paying the cost of the vehicle.

v1 - driver has the main gun, but it is fixed. Essentially this is PS2's default. Only diffrence is that the main gun is moved from the nose to the turret on the model.

v2 - the driver has no gun, but the turret is now mobile. The gunner can use the turret and rotate it freely. The turret moves independently from the tank's body (like in PS1).

As you see, there is no advantage over the other tanks this way.
+1 A much more elegant solution. Hot swapping should have a few seconds delay as well, Just 2 or 3 seconds.
