Hull #1 – represents an earlier version, armed with a 2 pounder QF gun on the forte deck and a single 20mm gun on the aft deck

Hull #2 – represents the up gunned MGB, armed with a semi-auto 6 pounder on the fore deck, a twin 20mm mid-ship (hits into a recess) and a 40mm bofors on the aft deck.

Both ships had two sets of twin .303 MGs mounted on either side of the upper pilot house.
