This is the main gun of the anti-air destroyers.
It is a groundbreaking new model anti-air high-angle gun with a long barrel, semi-automatic loading and a powered turret. It was equipped on the Akizuki-class destroyers.
Its complex design made it difficult to mass-produce, but it was a key part of the fleet's defence against the air superiority of enemy aircraft.
One of Japan's relatively successful anti-air weapons, being equipped on carrier Taihou, light cruiser Oyodo and Akizuki-class destroyers (the illustration shows the turret-mounted variant seen on Akizuki-class; Oyodo and Taihou were equipped with carriage-mounted ones). Both muzzle velocity and operating speed were increased significantly compared to traditional destroyer guns, making it more effective toward enemy aircraft. In reality its anti-surface ability was not as high due to accuracy and ammunition mass but in-game it has the same firepower stat as the twin 12.7cm. Although the gun proved effective, Japanese Navy's anti-air ability still lagged behind as the anti-air fire control device was outdated.
- It is easily accessible in-game as most destroyers carry it as stock equipment upon remodel; Chief Developer Mr. Tanaka once regretted that this weapon "was deployed rather too early, even before the Akizuki-class appeared in-game" in an interview.
Buildable. Not to be confused with 10cm Twin High-angle Carriage Mount . Stock equipment of all remodeled DDs except Mutsuki class, Yuugumo class, and Akigumo.
