Guessing for search and rescue. There should be a couple of small ones on the bow on some models as well. I did see on a couple models rear mounted AA, but that looked to be a permanent mounting.

just a swim platform/step so that crew and passengers dont step on the jet nozzles. I was trying to find out what the protrusions on each side of it were for but I cant find anything ... CB-90 fast assault craft build in Sweeden. US Navy has 6 according to the article I wrote

Hi Guys,

that folding frame is fro storage purpose when the boy is "parked" on land.
Have seen many pictures on the net when boat is on dry ground.
