||With her new hull number already applied, PC-1598 displays the armament fitted to the Pacific units by Norfolk Navy Yard. Forward of the 3-inch gun are two 12-round Mk 22 Mousetrap antisubmarine rocket launchers, and two Mk 6 depth-charge mortars are mounted just abaft the newly installed 40-mm Mk 3 antiaircraft gun. The original Mk 7 depth-charge racks have been replaced with Mk 9s, with racks for reload charges fitted between them. The five 20-mm antiaircraft mounts are fitted two on the main deck aft, two abreast the foremast, and one atop the pilothouse. Note the crow's nest lookout position still fitted on the mast.
