Used as Japanese post-Tenryuu class light cruisers' main armament, as well as battleships' secondary gun on Ise class and Nagato class. The original secondary battleship gun was calibrated at 15.2 cm but the shell weighing more than 40 kg was rather too heavy to be handled by hand, so came the smaller caliber 14 cm gun. The momentum of shell itself decreased slightly but the range remained same and it also had increased firing rate at a 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.
