Here is some info on the Defenders at BoatTest.com. I’m not sure how many differences, if any, there are from the USCG version.

  1. Iraq has 24 of those.
    And the linked article is incorrect: It is a .30 Cal vice 30mm machine gun mount forward…

  2. Correction: 26 by end of Jun 2009.

    I confused the numbers with the smaller Fast Attack Boats that Iraq has already received.
