  • Das QF 4,7 inch (120 mm) war ein britisches Schiffsgeschütz, das auch als Feldkanone bei der Armee und zur Küstenverteidigung eingesetzt wurde. Die Kaliberlänge beträgt 40 (4,8 m). Das angegebene Kaliber von 4,7 Zoll entspricht 119,4 mm, wie bei allen britischen Geschützen dieses Kalibers beträgt der genaue Wert 4,724 Zoll (120 mm). Treibladung und Geschoss wurden getrennt geladen.Das Geschütz wurde als Nachfolger und Ersatz für das ältere BL 5-inch-Schiffsgeschütz entwickelt. Es war für die modernen rauchschwachen Treibladungen wie Kordit optimiert und konnte wesentlich schneller geladen und abgefeuert werden als das BL 5-inch Geschütz, wobei das Geschoss nur unwesentlich leichter war.
  • Il QF 4.7 in Mk. I-IV è stato un cannone navale, costiero e campale di produzione inglese, adottato anche dalla Regia Marina ed in seguito dal Regio Esercito italiano, presso i quali era conosciuto come cannone da 120/40. La denominazione indica che si trattava un'arma a tiro rapido (Quick-Firing in inglese) del calibro di 4,7 pollici (in realtà 4.724 pollici, corrispondenti a 120 millimetri), prodotto nei modelli I, II, III e IV.

It was optimised for the modern smokeless propellants such as Cordite and could be loaded and fired far more rapidly than the BL 5-inch gun while firing a shell only slightly lighter.
