AA guns are a mess[edit]

The AA guns "as completed" need to be sorted out. Specifically, the 4 x QF 3-inch 20 cwt are listed twice.

Also : "Hawkins carried only the 12 pounder anti-aircraft (A/A) guns, her sisters having two (Raleigh) or three (Frobisher, Effingham) QF 4 inch Mark V guns on mountings HA Mark III." The 12-pounders i.e. QF 12 pounder 12 cwt, were not AA guns (HA), they were surface guns (LA). The statement doesn't make sense.

I suspect the writer has confused the QF 12 pounder 12 cwt with the QF 3 inch 20 cwt. I don't think cruisers of that era were armed with QF 12 pounder 12 cwt. Rcbutcher (talk) 12:28, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
