The main gun of fleet destroyers.
It has an enclosed, shielded turret that protects it against shrapnel and stormy weather. It also has powered turrets. It served as the main gun of modern small ships and many frontline destroyers.
It isn't good at anti-air because of its low maximum elevation.
Main Guns are the main armament used by surface ships. Their main stats are the "firepower" and "accuracy" . They are notably required to trigger all Artillery Spotting attacks as well as some Night Cut-Ins, notably the "Double Attack" (DA).
- Most main guns come with "Hidden Fit Bonuses/Penalties", especially larger ones.
- Small Caliber Main Guns bring some accuracy bonus against PT Imp.

The main gun for most post-Mutsuki class Japanese destroyers save for the Akizuki, Matsu, and Tachibana classes. Had four major variants denoted A, B, C, and D respectively (A being the oldest), the main differences between the variants being the weight and the gun's elevation angle. Type A was limited to 40deg. elevation and was quite useless when it came to the AA role. The maximum elevation angle was raised to 75deg. for the B- and D-types while the C-type was capable of 55deg. Unfortunately, the firing rate at high elevation angles was very low since the loading sequence required hand ramming, which made Japanese destroyers vulnerable to aerial attacks.
