I have a document indicating that PT334 experimentally mounted an aircraft 75mm M4 cannon on an M2A3 naval mount. I have the tech manual for the gun, but have not been able to find an image of the mount. Does anyone have a photo of 334 so armed? I'd like to do a drawing of her that way.

Hello Al,
I have 10 photos of PT334 that were obtained from crewman OB Williams a few years ago. In fact we modeled our 60mm mortar baseplate adaptor to replicate what they had on PT334. Unfortunately, the 10 photos dont really show the stern very clearly. I would be glad to send them to you if you want them.

Thanks, Gerry. If they're different than those on NAVSOURCE, yes, please.

Nope they are the same ones. So you already have them.

Hi all,

I don't have any pics of it, but there was a thread a little while back about it. I don't know if you have the same document, but it was mentioned in the MTB RONs 7th Fleet secret info bulletin from late 43, early 44. There's also a little blurb about it in action on p237 of At Close Quarters.
