15 cm Coastal Fortress guns

Two 15 cm long 30 turret mounted guns in the Fortress Maasmond, at Hook of Holland. These guns were only capable of slow firing rates and could deliver loads up to 8,000m. The 15 cm long 40 guns in the independant batteries were much more capable of delivering a punch to enemy ships than these outdated guns. Nevertheless they were still in use during the May war.
