I first noticed that this ship in the game had twin 4 inch mounts and thought, hey the four stackers only mount singles.

So I checked out the class and found that two, USS Hovey and USS Long had twin mounts fitted, so well done WG.

 

I'm interested in getting one but when I clicked on it in the tech tree it only shows single 4 inch guns, is this just the tech tree? If I get it will it have the twin mounts?

My guess is that some of the Clemson-class got modernized afterward.

However, due to gameplay balance reason (or whatever it could be) those modernized versions didn't get featured in-game, atleast not for now.

Sure they did. The reason charcoal44 didn't see them in the tech tree is Clemson, strangely enough, gets twin mounts with the hull upgrade.

She gets the twin guns with the hull upgrade, and they are very useful at dealing with enemy DD's or other ships (despite the shortage of range), as no other destroyer, US or Japanese(?) can fire a 6 gun broadside until tier 10 again. That is a lot of firepower for a tier 4 destroyer, and coupled with having 6 torpedo tubes on each side, this ship is my favourite American Destroyer - Jap destroyers are literally going to have a bad day in a gunfight with this ship, as it has great dpm on top of the 6 gun broadside

I completely agree with you in regards to Clemson's amazingness, but that:

is not entirely accurate - Fubuki (tier VIII) gets 3x2 12.7cm before the hull upgrade. Surprisingly, they have an acceptable turn rate (after a turret upgrade, a mod and a captain skill) and can be reliably used against enemy DDs.

My bad, I haven't really been into my jap destroyers, I'm a fan of the american ones due to their better dpm, bigger torp salvos and better AA, so now I'm up to the Mahan lol

Well you (and me) are out of luck - They are getting a ROF nerf next patch.

Probably need to start digging into IJN stuff now...

The only one getting the RoF nerf is the Gearing and the Nicholas.

Oh, right. Didn't see the notes right. At least the Fletcher didn't get touched.
