Default Re: British Naval gun support 1945-1982

HMS Belfast with 12 x 6 inch guns was operational until 1963 and in reserve until 1967. She is now a museum ship on the Thames in London.

Belfast could fire up to 96 6inch shells a minute from her four triple turrets, each gun firing up to eight times a minute.

The later Tiger class ships could fire up to 20 rounds a minute from each automatic 6 inch gun.
