A medium-ranged gun that was developed domestically as the main gun of light cruisers and secondary gun of battleships.
Although it is slightly obsolete, it still has range and power comparable to 15cm guns from the other major powers.
It is designed for surface combat so it is unable to be used for anti-air.
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.
