Yes, the seats all hang from the top. It's done that way to minimize damage to the crew from mines.

There is more room inside for both the driver and turret crew, well more room than a scorpion at least, it's basically a spartan inside.

The "Spoiler" on the turret is mostly a rollbar, the II is very top-heavy and they were found to be prone to rolling.

It also serves as someplace to mount fancy electronics like ground radar.

 

BAEsystems.com has a document called CVR(T)final.pdf that describes the changes, no good interior shots though.

Theres probably a good reason that there is a lack of internal photos available - Operational Security

 

Manuals for FV432's are still redacted where systems are still in operational use and could provide information to hostile parties.....
