US Navy number 46648 was one of the last Catalinas built, and one of the few delivered from the Consolidated-Vultee plant at New Orleans. Among their many modifications were the improved hull, tail and floats of the PBN-1, plus pylon-mounted radar and a new nose turret with twin .5-in (12.7-mm) guns.
