All Singapore AMTB Batteries were designed to be armed with Twin 6-Pounder QF Guns. These guns fired 6 Pound shells at a rate of 72 rounds per minute. In the event, there were insufficient Twin 6-Pounders to go round and much older 12-Pounder QF and Field Artillery 18-Pounders were pressed into service. Two ancient 6-Pounders were also mounted on a ship hulk to the east of Keppel Harbour and on the Mole to bolster the defences.
