Sorry David, there appears to be a single 5" missing starboard side aft by the raised 40mm quad. On the birdseye view. Nigel, Its been fixed. Good catch on the missing 5" single. As I look at that area, I don't think those single mounts can train. Their gun shield is blocked by the 40mm quad. Eithe...

Erik, I find your idea to replace the 6in runs with dual 5in/38 and the 5in/25 with single pedestal mounts intriguing and I have begun working on the drawing.
