It's crew of four was armed with a pair of 0.5 caliber machine guns in a turret at the bow, a single .5 cal gun or grenade launcher mounted on a tripod in the fantail, plus a single M-60 on a pipe mount bolted to one of the amidships splinter shields. It was powered by two turbocharged Detroit Diesel 205 HP, V-6 marine engine, driving a pair of Jaccuzzi 14 JY water jetdrives. The engines were located underneath the after decking, and the boat was steered by two movable nozzles below the water line, mounted on the rear transom, The water intakes were located on the hull bottom.
