38 caliber naval gun?

Found this a bit confusing

But this cleared it up: 5"/38 (12.7 cm) Mark 12

Layers of editorial oversight.

On the other hand, in their defense, I had to look it up myself to understand what the 5"/38 designation meant.

On the gripping hand, it took me less than a minute to figure it out using Wikipedia - a professional journalist has no excuse for not doing such a minimal amount of research.
