1/72 scale very hi detailed and accurate model of 3''/50 [7.62 Cm] Caliber AA Deck Gun for U.S. Navy ships.
Ship Class Used On: Many US ships 1915 through 1945
A series of 3" (7.62 cm) AA guns dating back to World War I. These were of a simpler construction than the previous 3" (7.62 cm) guns and successive marks were to improved designs. This gun was widely used up to the 1930s, but were then gradually replaced on larger ships by 5"/25 (12.7 cm) single mountings and later by Bofors 40 mm in twin and quad mountings. However, the battleships New York and Arkansas still had them as late as 1943. During World War II this weapon was extensively used on smaller warships such as destroyer escorts, submarines and auxiliaries along with many merchant ships with about 14,000 guns being produced between 1940 and 1945.
