Depth charge crane


Here you can see the progress in reconstructing two depth charge cranes. These were used to load depth charges onto the depth charge racks on the stern and the depth charge throwers ( K-gun). Both are  mounted  just behind the 40 mm on either side. Rebuilding the depth charge rack and throwers is also on our whish list.
