Hi Krishna,

It might be a harpoon gun or water cannon.  Any chance you could put a picture up please.

I think your'e talking about something like this.  It's usually referred to as a "Fire Monitor".  If you google for it you should find lots of pics.

Tugs display 2 or three white lights vetically on the mast depending on the length of the vessel they are towing.  From the back they show 2 lights white and yellow with the yellow at the top and, of course they show green and red to port and starboard.
