Al Ross came across this photo of PT331 with a THUNDERBOLT mounted. This is a new addition to the list of boats fitted with this mount. While undated, it is late-war as she has an SO3 radar and MS31/20L camo.

Frank and Al;
Great find!!!
There is definitely a few months between the two photos. The first photo shows SO-3 Radar, MK50 rocket launchers, and the Thunderbolt mount. 1945 photo.
The second shows SO-A radar and only the Thunderbolt Mount. Possibly a late 1944-early 1945 photo.
Take care,
TED
