This was an entirely different weapon from the famous Bofors. It was manufactured in England and some 500 guns and 200 mounts were imported to Japan during the late 1920s and early 1930s. These were used on a number of major Japanese warships. The gun was being replaced by the 25mm/60 antiaircraft gun at the time war broke out in the Pacific.

The gun came in both twin and single mounts. Both were used in land warfare, and armor piercing rounds were supplied for use against tanks and armored landing craft.
