It had fourteen coastal batteries, including one with two 280-mm howitzers near the old fortress,    and three batteries of 47-mm naval guns (four guns per battery) guarding the narrows. A battery of two 150-mm naval guns was in a commanding positions on Prvic Island. Two batteries of old 120-mm naval guns were southeast of the city. A battery of four 47-mm naval guns was on the northwest end of the island of Zlarin, and a battery of two 150-mm naval guns covered the coast near Zecevo. On the island of Zirje there was a battery of two 150-mm naval guns, and supporting it on the island of Kakan was a battery of two 190-mm naval guns and an army battery of four 100-mm guns.    Finally, another battery of four 47-mm naval guns on Logorun Island mounted its own searchlights."
