Depth Charge explodes behind Coast Guard Cutter

Depth Charge explodes behind Coast Guard Cutter
Here we see a depth charge exploding behind a US Coast Guard Cutter during battle practice in the North Atlantic. These cutters were amongst the most effective anti-submarine warfare vessels in the US Navy and could be quite sizable - the Treasury class cutters were significantly larger than the more famous River class frigates. Note her sizable main gun and ready ammo store.
