This drawing is 6-inch=15 cm gun.
Here similar emplacement for 4.7-inch=12 cm gun.
What about this preserved example, is it 15 or 12 cm gun (Kiangnan made?).
And gun on emplacement (without shield), 12 cm?

The preserved emplacement is not Lion Hill, but Qingliang Hill (Qingliang Shan). The emplacements on Lion Hill have all been destroyed with only underground structures survive. The only surviving gun emplacements in Nanjing is this one on Qingliang Hill and two (with another one or two partially destroyed) on Tiger Hill (Laohu Shan).
