The long list is inefficient. Describe each turret and say which turret is on which class and how many. Far easier to grasp. I'd also prefer to split these guns into two different articles to allow for complete stats for each gun.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 02:20, 24 January 2010 (UTC)
I fear your preference for "efficiency" might produce a confusing number of Stub-Class articles rather than a single, comprehensive article on the subject of main battery armament of Japan's Washington Naval Treatyheavy cruisers. The diameter difference is presently stated in the description of the Mark I and Mark II guns; but that difference is less than 2% of projectile diameter for guns of the same 3rd year type mounted in the same turrets of the same ships. I prefer to retain a single list of ships where readers might alphabetically locate and compare installations in ships of interest. I encourage you to add paragraphs for each of the individual turret specifications if you can find the information. I have been unable to locate a description of "B" type turrets, but I haven't found designations of the aircraft carrier casemate mountings or the 70 degree elevation turrets originally mounted aboard Akagi. I have also been unable to find comprehensive descriptions of the differences between the various "E" type turret subgroups. We might rethink separate articles when this one exceeds 30K bytes.Thewellman (talk) 16:53, 24 January 2010 (UTC)
I have found information and added a means of referencing by turret type as you suggested.Thewellman (talk) 18:26, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
