  1. This video is part 1 of the Tier 5 Battleship Armor Modeling and Citadel breakdown video series. This video looks into the Kongo and the Wyoming's ability to citadel a New York. To test this out shots were aimed at the boiler room and underneath the turrets. Training room sessions were recorded to backup the findings. Tests with the Kongo will be provided in a future video coming later this week. Let me know what you all think! The Taste Channel https://www.youtube....ldHT-w/featured World of Warships - Tier 5 Battleship Armor Modeling and Citadel Breakdown (Part 1) This is the 2nd video of the tier 5 battleship armor modeling series. This video details the Kongo, the Wyoming and the Nagato's ability to citadel a Kongo at the boiler room and underneath the turret. It definitely points out how big of a beast the Kongo is in comparison to the New York. These areas were shot from various angles to best test the ships armor against varying caliber weaponry. Training room sessions were recorded to backup the findings. Let me know what you all think! World of Warships - Tier 5 Battleship Armor Modeling and Citadel Breakdown (Part 2)

    Montana Changes for Public Test 0.6.6.0

    So logged on Public Test today and to see the changes to USS Montana. These are the changes I saw, didn't look too deep if there could be other changes. But citadel has been lowered and here are the other changes. Citadel Deck Changed from 150mm to 19mm ​Citadel Torpedo Bulkhead Changed from 45mm to 110mm​ PUBLIC TEST: LIVE:
  3. I really like playing the Fuso and I wanted to know the best and worst places to shoot the Fuso. I knew under the smoke stacks were good for citadels but I was surprised to see that underneath the turrets was not always an optimal shot choice. I put together a video which highlights the Fuso's armor and the best places to shoot the Fuso at closer ranges (line drive shots). I tested things out in a training room and some of the results surprised me. Anyways here is the link to the video if you all are interested in seeing what I found out. I will be checking the YouTube page off and on so leave me some comments on the channel so I can see what you guys and gals think. Or if you have any ideas for better tests to run. I know that results may differ with plunging shots and that is 1 alternative that I think I can test out. Testing plunging shots is harder though because of the battleship's RNG with it's shells. Part 1 I created a follow-on video to my original which details the Fuso armor against larger 16 inch guns. I wanted to see if the area underneath the turrets are able to be citadeled using the Nagato. I was surprised by the results. I then performed the same tests against a New Mexico to compare and contrast the results. Again that surprised me. Let me know what you all think about this updated video and if there are any other tests you would like to see. Part 2 Part 3 I took a deeper look into the New Mexico's armor to determine the ships defensive strengths and weaknesses. On part 3 I shot at the New Mexico while parallel and at angles to see how the armor reacts in differing circumstances. The New Mexico definitely showed some promise in certain cases. For me the only issue with the New Mexico is the ships speed. I am interested to see what you all think. Leave some comments and let me know what you all think.

    Tirpitz Citadellenbereich?

    Wie der Titel schon sagt wo ist der Citadelen Bereich der Tirpitz? Habe jetzt einige Matches gehabt und ich kann die Position nicht wirklich ausmachen.

    About the Iowa/Montana

    Browsing the American Forums, I've stumbled upon this thread: http://forum.worldofwarships.com/index.php?/topic/99212-confirmed-iowamontana-citadel-modeling-error/ For those of you too lazy to click that, it basically shows that the citadel model on both the Iowa and the Montana include a splinter deck which (obviously) should not be a part of it. This makes the citadel on both ships extend far above the waterline and is one of the reasons why they're so vulnerable compared to their contemporaries. Separating the splinter deck from the citadel would make them similar to the North Carolina and therefore much harder to hit at closer ranges. The official answer was: First of all, according to people in the thread (and I have no reason to believe they are lying) both Iowa and Montana are the only battleships in the game whose citadels are modeled to include the splinter deck (apparently the Yamato as well, but that is arguable). And I believe it is widely accepted that the Montana at least is the worst performing T10 battleship, being outclassed by both the Yamato and the G.Kurfürst in almost every category. Publicly available data supports this, showing that the Montana comes in dead last by a good amo in every relevant category across almost every server (a common trend for USN ships). The Russian server stands out as an anomaly, on which it on average sports slightly better damage and survival rates than the Yamato during the last two weeks. (I'm basing this off of warships.today, as wows-numbers is currently down, but I believe other stat sites will draw a similar picture) Of course, there are also things that will never be reflected in stats. Assuming a similar skill level, I think everyone will agree with me that a Yamato or a G.Kurfürst will usually win a fight against a Monty barring any divine intervention from RNGesus. The Montana simply doesn't have enough strengths to make up for it, most of her former ones taken away by the G.Kurfürst when it was introduced. Even some of the things it has going for it can be argued upon (for example Yamato is arguably better at weathering air strikes thanks to its absurd TDS value, as neither will be capable of wiping out a significant portion of T10 planes before they drop their payloads). This raises several questions: If being the most underperforming ship in its bracket is not enough to warrant a buff, what is? Sure, Monty deletes cruisers real good, but so do both the Yamato and the G.Kurfürst in addition to not being comparatively useless at everything else. And Monty is the most vulnerable to cruiser AP shells out of the 3. Does this perhaps mean that the game is only balanced based on statistics available on the Russian server? I've read otherwise, but WG employees are apparently no stranger to lying to the community as evidenced above. Is WG happy with the current state of US ships? If so, doesn't this validate everyone crying about "anti-US bias"? Including other facts like STS plating not being considered as armor (for those that don't know, that's 114mm of armor missing on the turret faceplate for the Montana alone), it'd be rather difficult to argue against that. It may just be that WG is waiting on how much the recent armor buff will affect the statistics before making further changes. Separating the splinter deck from the citadel would of course be a rather big survivability buff to the Iowa and the Montana, but the reasons given do seem rather questionable to say the least. Thoughts? PS: Well, this sure turned into a wall of text. It's my first post here, too *sigh*.

    Mogami and its Citadel

    So I've been playing the Mogami quite a bit lately, its very different from the Aoba and the Myoko, which i enjoyed alot. I've mostly played it with the 155mm, but lately been trying out the 203s, to get my mindset in line with the Ibuki which is 30k xp away from me. But there's one thing that bums me with the mogami, compared to the Aoba and the Myoko. It doesn't seem as though overpenetration mechanics works on it, if a BB hits my mogami with AP, no matter where they hit, no matter what angle, it will ALWAYS do a citadel pen, I've been hit in my bum as I was racing away from a BB and been citadel penetrated, I've been sailing towards a crippled BB posing the smallest target i could and been hit in the face and gotten citadel penned, it just pretty much seems as though the Mogami is a floating citadel. I don't know, it just seems to me as if its armor is bugged.
  9. Do we have any sites that show specific hitboxes of every ship. So many times I come close to an enemy ship and aiming at th engine bay almost never results in a citadel hit. Than again... sometimes I hit the ship a bit to the front or the back and I get a citadel penetration. We need more information on every ship and where to shoot at.
  10. Greetings, Since I was under the impression that battleship merely had to hit the citadel area in order to deal full damage, I decided to do some not overly scientific tests when it was mentioned that this no longer was the case. First off, an Iwaki Alpha was put against a North Carolina (fair fight, indeed). Since the Iwaki has an extremely large citadel area (see image), it was fairly easy to avoid hitting the citadel roof. Initially only armour piercing rounds were tested. The observed behaviour was that every single shot overpenetrated the citadel area, resulting in a low damage output. Images can be found below. The natural course of action was to see what happened if HE shells were used in stead. I think the next image speaks for itself: The following attachments will be used in the next post, so no need to waste your time opening them here :3.

    Citadel Hits: landing those critical shots

    So you know how citadel shots are so rewarding when landed? How they can really tip the scales in a close encounter? Well then now it's time for a little treat: And in case you missed out on the first episode of the series: Over and out! - Fraczon
  14. Hi everyone. I want to get some information about something that happened to me yesterday.I was sailing with my Yamato on Shattering map near A cap.We were winning but our team on C collapsed(Because we went for A-B plan) so even if were winning we were nearly flanked from behind.So i turned back to fight.I was heavily out-numbered(Me vs Montana, Roon, Fletcher, New Orleans) so it was obvious that i will be going down so i want to take some down with me.First i sinked Fletcher, then aimed for New Orleans(has 12k hp) which was just 6 km away from me.Player showed me ships broadside with showing me underbelt i aimed at there.Scored 3 hits out of 6(3 of them went into water, i aimed really close to waterline).I obviously hit citadel area, New Orleans should have been sunk, but no, all of them were overpen with 4k damage.Just after that i got killed by Montana.That's the end. And my question is the one you see on topic: Is it possible to overpen citadels?

    Hood citadel

    just noticed, Hood citadel seems to be to low, its either citadel height or ship sitting to deep in the water. here are armor schemes: according to that waterline is at 1/3 of inclined deck, in game citadel deck is exactly at waterline in mean time Nagato with waterline starting in middle of inclined deck there is difference
