The Mk3 Battleship Cannon uses the term "Mk" or Mark. But the Naval Gun is called the Type 45 which uses the term "Type". A while back I saw @Saelem Black post something about the 5-inch Allied Naval Gun being named the Mk45 (which is true, being used on some USN destroyers). Is it because of the naming of the Type 45 wanted to reference the Mk45 while not being named exactly the same?
