Where you put the fore 3 inch AA guns is where the 3pdr saluting guns is postitioned. The second pair of AA guns should be directly forward of the aft superstructure goes down 1/3 of a deck, besides the triple stack of lifeboats.

You can see it here on my drawing:

Here is an official USN blueprint to prove it:

The second pair of 76mm AA guns appear to be missing.
