More about the GB/CL/1916 design
I looked again at the GB/CL/1916 design. The armament includes 10-6in/50 QF guns. They are in two twin 6in mounts, one at the bow and one at the stern. There are also six single guns, three on each side, amidships ("fore deck, aft" in Springsharp parlance). That gives a seven gun broadside. Realistic fire ahead and astern is just two guns, but for targets that are off center, perhaps as many as five guns could be fired.
