Battery Tactical #2 consisted of four 155-mm GPF guns emplaced on circular Panama type mounts. The Coast Artillery installed the guns along the south side of the road leading east to Ft. J. H. Smith.

As of 2005 the battery site has been subdivided and is now privately owned. The gun mounts were buried, although the edges of three emplacements are visible along the road cut.
