Thunderbolt ( USS Randolph / ACM 15 )

Die USS Randolph wurde 1942 als Minenleger für die Army´s Coast Artillery Corps zum Verlegen von Minen vor der Westküste der USA eingesetzt. Später folgten zivile Einsätze bei der Suche nach Ölfeldern und letztendlich diente sie als stationärer „Blitzableiter“ bei der Erforschung und künstlichen Herbeiführung von Blitzeinschlägen, woher sich dann auch ihr Name ableitet

Heute liegt sie in 40 m Wassertiefe vor der Küste von Marathon, Florida.
