What is the reason for the slanted mounting on warship. It brings to mind the Sea Zenith mount, but I can't see how it would work.
Reasons might include a lower possible elevation (engaging small boats?). A side slant puts the centre of the elevation traverse closer to your main threat vectors (excluding top down attacks).

Directly using the land based system lowers purchase, development and through life costs.

Though that can create other problems that could ultimately end up outweighing the benefits, such as lack of proper marinisation.
