This photo is, I think, a Ron 15 boat. It was in with a group of pictures of the 212 boat. I've seen it in black and white previously. But I'll state that I have no idea what boat it really is.

Do you think it's a colorized photo ? I think some of the colors are interesting. Thought you might like it.

The mount placement matches other shots of the 212, but I think other boats in the squadron also had .50s in similar setups.

A play on Helen of Troy who launced a thousand ships but perhaps they were thinking sank a thousand ships?

I know I saw that Charlie, but it figures the way it is attached to the decking is blocked, nice color photo thought. This should help those model builders out there for sure......................
