QF 5.25-inch naval gun - Princess Anne's Battery – Gibraltar - 3D printed model
Unlike its French and Italian contemporaries of similar size the QF 5.25 was designed as dual-purpose gun capable of engaging both aircraft and surface targets. Combining the secondary and heavy anti-aircraft armament allowed a significant weight savings for the King George V-class battleships, which were designed to meet the Washington Naval Treaty limit of 35,000 tons.
