The 20.3cm twin gun was the main armament of heavy cruisers. Calibered at 8 inches (20.3cm) which is the limit of naval treaty, it works extremely well in both day and night battle, from point blank to mid-range firing. Also works in a limited capacity as anti-air weapon.
Equipped historically as the standard main guns for all Japanese heavy cruisers. Initially it was developed as 20.0cm single mount (as seen on early Furutaka class) but was later modified to fit 8.0 inch (20.3cm).
Can also be equipped on light cruisers, since in the KanColle world "there's no naval treaty". However in an interview with Japanese Febri magazine, the line appeared as "20.3cm guns equipped on light cruisers will not be able to show 100% efficiency", although there is no quantitative data to prove the fact.
