QuoteWe will never known, but a thought about the "potential" secondary armament that could have been 5-in/38cal if the ships were built. The development of the 5-in/54cal guns was protracted, so "IF" the decision was made to build the MONTANA's on a high priority basis during WWII, the USN could have decided to install the 5-in/38cal mounts. At least on the first few units,Even the 5-in/54cal guns on the MIDWAY class wasn't the design desired. It was more of a modified 5-in/38cal gun and had issues with NOT reaching the specified rate of fire.
QuoteNo twin 5-in/54cal mount for the MONTANA class was built. The Single 5-in/54cal mount development (for the MIDWAY Class) started in JULY 1942 and was placed in service in APRIL 1946. A Twin 5-in/54cal mount for use on a "new" destroyer design was started in July 1944, but didn't make it to production.
