Introduction

巡洋艦の主砲や戦艦の副砲として独自開発された中距離砲です。
やや旧式化していますが、列強の15cm砲とほぼ同等の射程と 威力を持っています。
対艦対地専門で、対空射撃はできません。

"The mid-range gun intended for cruisers' main gun and also battleships' secondary gun. A bit old-fashioned but still retains same range and firepower compared to 15cm guns of overseas. Designated for anti-surface combat, so anti-air firing is not possible."

Used as Japanese post-Tenryu class light cruisers' main armament, as well as battleships' secondary gun in Ise class and Nagato class. The original secondary battleship gun was calibered at 15.2cm but the shell weighing more than 40kg was rather too heavy to be handled by hand, thus came the smaller calibered 14cm gun. The momentum of shell itself decreased slightly but the range remained same, and it also have increased firing rate at maximum of 10 rounds/min. The fleet's food supply ship, Mamiya was also equipped with this gun. Also a twin-mount version existed and was used by Yuubari and the Katori-class.

A somewhat underpowered equipment, with its AA firepower exceeded even by the 12.7cm twin guns of destroyers.

Note
