Note that vehicles with multiple turrets have multiple HitTurret and HitGun classes that can't be distinguished based on the Hitpoint class name. They can only be distinguished by their selection names. The selection names do not necessarily correspond to a common nomenclature, especially for mod vehicles. There can also be multiple empty Hitpoint Class names on a vehicle or infantry unit. They can be hitpoints for vehicle headlights or be the result of a bad config/model, as hitpoints that have an undefined named selection in their config class or are missing their named selection in the model will result in an empty HitPoint class name.

Note: Since Arma 3 Tank DLC, Turrets of vanilla vehicles no longer have identical Hitpoint Classes for multiple Turrets. Mod vehicles may still have the old issue, but they produces error messages in RPT if they still do (and thus should be enough motivation to fix them).
