The 9.2” BL (breech loading) coast defence gun became the standard armament for long range defence, alongside the 6” quick-firing gun for closer defence and the 12 pounder for inshore work.
These three gun were to become the backbone of British coastal defences at Mediterranean stations up until World War II. See also the 100 Ton Gun
