Hi people. It's been a while, hasn't it.
ANyway, I come to you today not with a drawing, but with a question.
Can anyone ID the radar sets on this, the Hateruma class patrol boat? It's part of the Japanese Coast Guard and it's a pain in the ass getting details on it.
Thanks for any help.

It's just normal Navigation and surface search radar. There is also an searchlight up there.

Is that not the LIDAR system they apparently mount? If not, any idea where that would be?

Thanks, I had a feeling they were, just wanted to be sure.

I think the LIDAR set either the foremost object on top of the wheelhouse or the mount on the small blockhouse just aft of it.

Hood's right from what I can see, very much looks like a LIDAR

Thanks guys
We've now ended up with 16 players, and the GM is wondering whether the ship is a bit small for that many players (it has but 30 crew) :D
We might be dumped onto a Tsuguru instead...
