Introduction

巡洋艦の主砲だったものを、戦艦の副砲として活用しました。
「大和」型に搭載され、対空戦も可能な、性能・運用性ともに優秀な戦艦副砲となりました。
砲塔部の装甲が薄いのが玉に瑕で、諸説ありますが「大和」型の唯一の弱点という指摘もありました。

"Developed to cover the absence of heavy cruisers, which were restricted under naval treaty, by deploying light cruisers with enhanced firepower. It was the first 3-gun turret, highly rated in every aspects such as range, firing rate and actual operation. Was later equipped as secondary guns for Yamato class battleships. Could be used in anti-air firing as well."

Equipped by Mogami-class cruisers before they were converted into heavy cruisers by swapping their gun into 20.3cm turrets. Apparently Mogami-class was designed as a heavy cruiser, but the naval treaty at the time defined cruiser types with main gun caliber so it is a sort of regulation loophole. The other ships that also equip this are the Yamato-class Battleship and the Oyodo-class Light Cruiser
