Built by Sir W. G. Armstrong Whitworth & Co Ltd in the United Kingdom. Prewar, sold to the Japanese Navy.
Transported to Ponape Island. One of four guns emplaced on Temwen Island in a coastal defense fortress guarding the entrance to Madolenihmw
Harbor. This gun has a shield. The breech block is removed.
Remains in situ, this gun is half buried. In the late 1990s, the local land owner was
excavating and clearing gun emplacements, work seems to have stopped
by 1999. This gun was never excavated.
