Ned help wth plans for a turret Answered

I'm creating a remote controlled coil gun turret that autoloads, and is able to adjust aim in any direction using the remote control. I can figure out the spin aspect of the turret pretty well, but I'm having issues incorporating the vertical aspect to the barrel (to adjust the angle of fire), the only ideas I have for this seems too elaborate, I was wondering what people that had approached the idea previously had attempted. I'm ignorant to the working of turrets in general, this includes any terms associated with them, but I do have the rest of the gun figured out for the most part, I'm researching the turret before any construction begins, so I can put it together correctly. I'm 15 years old, and willing to learn, so any help is appreciated.
