In-game Zao is using a different gun. 203mm/50 type 18(type 18 means year 1958 right?)

MV is higher at 920m/s

And the shells are different.

 

data is historical. Zao didnt exist. Data taken from takao. Same shells. Except velocity. In game should be different but not irl

 

Plus zao guns is triple barrel than takao. Design is late war.

I think Zao's guns are purely fictional as well. Zao's basic data is probably the new heavy cruiser in construction plan Maru 6. A twelve gun type A cruiser, the details are unknown. The in-game Zao appears similar to a design made post-war in a Japanese magazine.

I've heard of a L55 203mm gun succeeding the L50 guns served on all IJN heavy cruisers. Called "temporarily named 50-caliber Mark 3 20cm guns". They were named 50-caliber to hide their actual length, as IJN did to many of their armaments, and never went out of test stage, the test was a success tho. But I've never heard of IJN having a newer, more powerful 203mm L50 than the "50-caliber Mark 2 20cm".

The in-game AP of Zao's gun is type 92 AP, never heard of, probably also purely fictional.
