Rewatched In Harm's Way and Something new

DD 298 that was in PH during the raid and rushes out to sea had a normal size A turret and B turret was hugely oversized. I am guessing that was a prop turret to hide post war armament and provide the 1941 look.
The actual ship is USS Philip (DD-498) and I see that by 1961 B turret was gone.
