|French term or phrase: dans un capot à l’AR.|
|Here is how it is used. I have no idea what an AR is, however. |
"Le Chef de section est placé dans un capot à l’AR. de la tourelle. Dans ce capot se tient également le télémétriste avec un télémètre Barr et Stroud de 2 mètres."
Thank you in advance.
|in a cabin behind|
capot could also be hood or cockpit or emplacement or even seat, depending on the context (is it still naval gunnery?)
You could say "at the rear of" instead of behind

in a hatch (located) aft of the turret, in an aft hatch of the turret
A couple of comments.
- When it comes to ships, then “arrière” is “aft”.
- “Capot” is not a cabin. It is generally a “hatch” but can also be a type of cover.
- “Tourelle” can be many things but “turret” is most likely here.
As I see it, there are 2 guys standing up in the hatch (located) aft of the turret, or in an aft hatch of the turret thus not in the turret itself). The former appears to be the most likely.
The armor belt, constructed of wood covered by layers of iron armor, is also showing increasing signs of disintegration. A wood sample was cored from the armor belt just aft of the turret in 1998. The recovered sample was surprisingly sound and showed no evidence of shipworm (teredo) damage.
Extensive salvage operations are recorded in the bow area. The remains of the forecastle deck and main deck were cut away and removed, and mud was pumped out of the area. The salvage log records much cutting on the second and third decks and the forward bulkheads. The magazine explosion clearly damaged the lower deck areas aft as far as the No. 2 turret. Navy salvage divers were unable to enter sections of No. 2 because passageways were blocked with wreckage. The explosion apparently collapsed bulkheads supporting the No. 1 turret, which still remains onsite, and the turret rests 15 feet lower than its original position.

turret = tourelle n. f.
Déf. : 1°) Plate-forme couverte et fermée montée sur pivot, qui supporte une partie de l'artillerie d'un navire. Un tourelle peut être simple, double, triple, quadruple suivant le nombre de pièces qu'elle abrite. Le pivot de la tourelle est aménagé (monte-charges, norias pour permettre l'acheminement des projectiles et des gargousses depuis les soutes jusqu'aux pièces.
