Recommended for:
 
Among naval historians, the US Navy 5"/38 caliber gun is considered the best intermediate-caliber, dual purpose naval gun of World War II.  Mounted on several classes of US Navy and US Coast Guard ships, the "Single Knuckle" or "Lightweight" version was normally fit in locations where roof reinforcement was not required.

This "Early Version" of the 5"/38 Mark 30 Mod.60 Single Mount was fit to destroyers and destroyer escorts through 1942.  It has different hatch and stiffener details than the late style mount, available separately (click here).  

Photos indicate that among the many ships that carried this "Early Version" were:
  • USS Fletcher  DD-445
  • USS Jenkins DD-446
  • USS Nicholas DD-449
  • USS O'Bannon DD-450
  • USS Chevalier DD-451
  • USS Halford DD-480
  • USS Charles Ausburne DD-570
  • Cuitlahuac (ex-USS John Rodgers DD-574)
  • USS Hammann  DD-412
  • USS Mustin DD-413
  • USS Benson DD-421
 
Classes that carried this mount include:
  • Bagley
  • Benham
  • Benson
  • Buckley
  • Butler
  • Dunlap
  • Fletcher (early ships of the class)
  • Garcia
  • German destroyer class 119
  • Gridley
  • Secretary
  • Sims
 
Of the five 5-inch/38 caliber Mk.30 single mounts normally fitted to a Fletcher class destroyer, three "Single Knuckle" mounts were carried, all located on top of deckhouses in superfiring positions, one forward (“Mount 52”) and two aft (“Mount 53” and "Mount 54").
Features: 
  •  printable in various material with pricing according to the material desired
  •  asymmetrical gunhouse (turret)
  •  can be made rotatable and the gun can be positioned at any elevation
  •  accurately offset gun opening
  •  detailed turret bottom supporting structure with accurately located bolt-head detail
  •  rear vent
