Does the gun's center of mass move to adjust elevation in the turret?

Nope, it elevates purely vertically.

But with a pivot point very near the end of the barrel? Or does the armor around the gun move?And you're saying there's no gun depression?

The tank is a great concept. Low profile, shallow front angles, side armor, secondary armament, it's all there.
The armor around the main gun is a little over the top, but hey, why not?

The only big question I have is: How does a species without appendages build, much less drive, *anything*?

Ah, the head actually splits into multiple tentacles, so that gives them their 'limbs'.

What is that serpentine shape near the side? Is it a model?

Not a model, a design for an alien land tank. That serpent is the pilot :)

If thats so then why are there tread? Wouldn't the wheels be similare to the way that they walk.. Some type of beveled slithery single base wheel? Basically using the same mechanics as they do.
Not downing it, but that just kinda caught me off guard.

An interesting point!

Problem is, with a slithering wheel, large numbers of joints may be needed and every complication would be a possible failure point. It is certainly worth thinking about though...
