This is clearly a reference to the lone gun mounted aft; according to Ballard a 100-pdr in Warrior and Black Prince (on a turntable) and I gather a 7-in. Armstrong in the Defence and Resistance (on racers). One reason I refuse to buy any more of Friedman’s books is his inability to express things clearly (especially in the bloody captions which contain information best absorbed into the main text).
