Among naval historians, the US Navy 5"/38 caliber gun is considered the best intermediate-caliber, dual purpose naval gun of World War II.  Lighter than the earlier, heavier version designed for fast battleships, the "Mark 32" version of the twin mount was designed specifically for aircraft carriers and cruisers and other ships where weight was an important consideration such as USS Pennsylvania BB-38.

Six Mk.32 mounts are known to have been carried by the following classes:

  • Alaska class
  • Oakland class
  • Baltimore class
  • Cleveland class
