According to Bernhard Gomm, in his multi-volume tome on the Russian Imperial fleet (vol. VI) (1996), Kuban was armed in 1904 with 2 X 4.7" guns and 4 X 3" guns as well as 2 machineguns. The 4.7" guns were mounted on either side of the forward superstructure. The 3" were mounted 1 on the forecastle, 1 on the poop, and 1 each on the sides in the aft well between poop and superstructure deck. The guns did not have shields.
