I have found multiple historical photographs of the vehicle's actual maximum depression with its main gun and machine gun and have also taken screenshots of the War Thunder AMD.35/Panhard 178 Armored Car at maximum gun depression for comparison. 

 

Historical photographs....

War Thunder screenshots of the AMD.35/Panhard 178 Armored Car at maximum gun depression. It turns out the machine gun barely even depresses at all!
