The Alqatat Gunsmiths 152mm Gun is the currently largest gun in service with the Sultan's Navy. Based on a design from the 40s, they replaced the, by then age-old, Rusadir Steelworks RS-16 135mm Guns. These guns are mostly found on cruisers and large destroyers like the Sharaf-class Guided Missile Cruiser and the Meninx-class Destroyer. They were introduced in 1948 with the Damir-class Corvettes.
