The Mk.14 and Mk.15 torpedo mounts were the standard World War II-era US Navy torpedo mounts first fit to destroyers of the Benson/Gleaves class beginning in 1937. They continued to be the standard torpedo mount for the following Fletcher (DD-445) classAllen M. Sumner (DD-692) class, and Gearing (DD-710) class.  These ships mounted either one or two mounts.  

The Mk.14 and Mk.15 torpedo mounts launched 21-inch diameter Mk.15 torpedoes (not included). The Mk.15 Mount carried a drum-shaped blast shield installed to protect the operating crew from the gun blasts of a nearby 5"/38 caliber gun and twin 40mm Bofors.  The circular Blast Hood was normally fit to the aft torpedo mount nearest the No. 53 Five-inch/38 Gun Mount.  Other than the blast shield, the Mk.14 and Mk.15 Mounts were identical.

From Microworks.com: "In the battles of Vella Gulf and Cape St. George, destroyer attacks using torpedoes [launched from this mount] sank six enemy destroyers without losing a single man, with a [seventh] (the legendary Shigure) escaping only because a torpedo hitting her rudder failed to explode.

"U.S. destroyer torpedoes also accounted for the only "dreadnought"-type battleship ever sunk in action by surface launched torpedoes, the Fuso, during the Battle of Surigao Strait."
