This early "Square-back" Mk.37 director featured five observation hatches and three telescope port covers. Many of these Mk.37 directors were modified to a later configuration (available separately) that had a shielded position for the director captain.
These directors were commonly installed on many classes of US Navy and US Coast Guard ships during World War II. They carried Mk. 12/22 radars.
