This is the new long 8cm high-angle gun.
It is a miniaturized and lightened anti-air secondary gun version of the Akizuki class's long 10cm high angle gun.
While it is evaluated to be of little improvement, it was anticipated by the warships built later into the war.

They are notably required to trigger some weaker Artillery Spotting attacks as well as some Night Cut-Ins, notably the "Double Attack" (DA).
