As rearmed she had 8 x 15 inch guns in two quadruple Turrets forward.

9 x 6 inch.
12 x 3.9 inch AA.
56 x 40mm AA Bofors.
50 x 20mm AA Oerlikons.

I cannot imagine what it must have been like to face up to her in a Stringbag!!

Don't think you need to be a fluent French speaker to translate this filename! Again courtesy of the Grimaldis.
