I know there have been listings of the Ron 9 80' Elcos that carried the 20mm setups in the forward starboard turret before, but I can't remember if the 159 had one or not.

I know the 159 had the SCR-517A beehive radar at Rendova, because I've seen it on the color film video (Dick?) posted.

So...did the 159 have the starboard turret 20mm setup (at Rendova)?

This is all I have on the 159, sorry but I don't know the location but hopefully someone else does. It appears to have the 20mm: https://i.imgur.com/xNxHJJs.jpg

I have the same photo. Pretty sure it is at Rendova.

Copy, Will.

I was asking about the summer of '43 period at Rendova, around the time when the color film footage was shot.

The photo Jeff posted had to have been taken at a later time, due to the later-series radars on the two boats.
