The Type 41 10-inch
naval gunwas designed by Vickers specifically for the Imperial Japanese Navy, and was of a very similar design to the Vickers Mark VI and Mark VII guns produced initially for the Chilean Navyand later used in Royal Navyservice.
The "Kashima" class used these weapons as secondary armament. The "Satsuma" class was originally intended to be built with all 12-inch guns, which would have made this class the first true all big gun
dreadnoughtclass in the world; however, budgetary constraints forced the Japanese navy to use a mixture of 12-inch and 10-in guns, as per the previous "Kashima"-class.
The gun was officially designated as “Type 41” from the 41st year of the reign of
Emperor Meijion 1908-12-25. It was further re-designated in centimeters on 1917-10-05as part of the standardization process for the Imperial Japanese Navy to the metric system.
After the scrapping of both the "Katori"-class and the "Satsuma"-class under the terms of the
Washington Naval Treatyin 1923, the guns were salvaged and used in coastal artillerybatteries. The guns formerly on the "Aki" were re-used in fortifications around Tokyo Bay.
