Here there are some diagrams of BH.7 hovercraft, among them the Mk.20 variant of latter.

Does anyone have info for that variant of BH.7? I know about the Mk.5A (as bought by Iran) and that Mk.20 was powerd by one Alisson KF570.

The link posted is from that webpage. The specs in your link are for the BH.7 Mk5 (or the Mk.2), not the Mk.20, which was lengthened but don't know how much.

BH.7 Mk.6 with twin turbines but single prop. It is possible that the Mk.20 was a single engine version of Mk.6.

Does anyone knows the type of mines shown on the minelaying BH.7?

Started drawing above BH.7 Mk 6 hovercraft.

I borrowed the prop tower from the old SR.N4 we had in the archive, since according to Flight Global the SR.N4 had four towers from BH.7 Mk 4(they shared Proteus engines).

I have never seen that OTO Melara cover, can someone provide sources for that?

I added also an artistic impression of BH.7 Mk 6 above which I have found.

The gun on the artist impression looks a ridiculous lot like an oto 76, with an add on on the back of the gunhouse, maybe try out a bit with that turret?
