Several photos of the forward 40mm mount installed on PT-174. Sorry that the resolution is so poor. From PT Boat Museum's collection.

Andy;
Once again a nice selection. I never understood why they put this mount and shielding on 174, then removed it prior to shipment, then when the boat got out to the Solomons, they found another 40MM and put it back.

Also of note, the RON 10 boats left the factory in gray. But in the one photo, you can just see the bow of an adapter camo boat, probably PT 139(the first boat tested in this scheme).

Take care,
TED
