Theo Spark: HMCS Fredericton
Needs a proper gun. For shore bombardment/ naval gunfire support you needs at least a medium size gun with a 155mm bore or larger. A 3"/76,, gun is useless in every role and a 4.5" (UK) or 5" gun (US) if targeted at a modern main battle tank will give the crew a nasty headache and make them miss liberty when they repaint. Not a very cost effective weapons system. For war fighting and power projection more real big guns are needed.
