Developed to cover the absence of heavy cruisers, which were restricted under naval treaty, by deploying light cruisers with enhanced firepower. It was the first 3-gun turret, highly rated in every aspects such as range, firing rate and actual operation. Was later equipped as secondary guns for Yamato class battleships. Could be used in anti-air firing as well.
Equipped by Mogami-class cruisers before they were converted into heavy cruisers by swapping their gun into 20.3cm turrets. Apparently Mogami-class was designed as a heavy cruiser, but the naval treaty at the time defined cruiser types by main gun caliber so it was a sort of regulation loophole. The other ships that also equip this are the Yamato-class Battleship and the Ōyodo-class Light Cruiser.
Does NOT enjoy CL fit gun firepower bonus.
