A definition or brief description of 4.5"-55 caliber Mark 8 gun.

A redesigned British naval gun intended to have a higher rate of fire than its Mark 6 predecessor, but whose Mark 0 first version suffered from jamming during the Falklands War; the current Mark 1 has substantial changes and is replacing Mark 0s.
