In the Cruel seas US weapons pack, there is something called a thunderbolt. Looks like a deck weapon of some sort. Online search has lead me to the Elco Thunderbolt which was a quad 20mm mount used on some PT boats. Good enough, only the picture of the one at Warlord looks nothing like a quad 20. And I can find no mention of it in the rules or ship descriptions. Can anybody point me to what this thing is? Or if there are any special rules or really anything about it?

Thanks for any help

You're right it looks nothing like the Thunderbolt which was a quad 20mm with 2 50 cal. mgs.


From here.

Many thanks. I have gamed 1/2400 WWII for many years. Coastal forces are a new obsession
