You are correct about the MK 14 Fire Control Director. Routine filtration system was an air, color-coded. However, the US NAVY upgraded the MK 14 to MK 51s at the end of the war and USS LST-325s was changed out to MK 51 (similar in appearance only) and was transferred to the Hellenic Navy with Mark 51s (located in both Tub's)---and N2 was used for preventive and repair maintenance of humidity, etc...(regardless of the filtration system). See Navy Intel Records below.
In addition, I would agree with your assessment that N2 was used for Fire Suspension. I just love the navyese talk
