This was the standard Italian close-range AA weapon used on larger ships during World War II. The guns used in the Model 1932 twin mounting were water-cooled with a recirculating pump, all other mountings used air-cooled guns. The magazines held only six rounds, but it was possible to load them sequentially and thus maintain a high rate of fire. The Model 1939 was a single collapsible mounting used on the forecastles of the Littorio and Duilio classes.
