Fallout Re: British Naval gun support 1945-1982

I was called away for the "family duties" of the day on my last post. For Peru my item will be an ADD for next year as it's not in the current OOB. Would like to submit with an actual ship's picture since the ships and gun size (BOFORS 15.2 cm/53 (6") Model 1942.) were limited to this class only during the full time that they were available from 1973 - present. What's also interesting is these guns could also fulfill an AA role as well up to 50,000ft which seems impressive for a gun of that size and of that period. The current ship (BAP Almirante Grau (ex-De Ruyter) CLM-81) mounts a total of 8 guns in 4x2 turrets.
