The PBR or Patrol Boat River was part of the brown river navy. Based a commercial pleasure boat. This is the Mk 2 which had a 32' hull made of fiberglass. It had water jet engines such that there were no propellers to get fouled.
This one depicts one with dual .50 caliber machine guns up front and a single .50 aft. It had a crew of four, a coxswain, gunners mate, engineer (also one of the gunners) and a commander. The commander was usually an ensign. The commander here is the one loading an M79 grenade launcher between two metal shields.
Many extras to see on this model although in reality it would have more ammo cans. As many as possible without sinking. Sadly it lost its radar in a firefight.
