Need help how to citadel different BBs with Moskva .

where to aim for citadel and from how much distance for ships like Yamato, Montana, Conquerer, Republique.

the reason I am asking is, I am playing ranked and not able to citadel bbs properly if it is possible.

Thank You in advance

To punch through 400mm of belt armor:

-you need to be close, too close for most Moskva situations, usually below 10km

-guy on receiving end need to show near perfect broadside

-guy on receiving end needs to play Yamato, as every other battleboat have basically untouchable citadel

 

How exactly these are likely to happen?:cap_hmm:

While The_Baptist might be blunt, his advice is actually pretty good. There are two things to do:

1. In the port, go to the ships you want to citadel and check their armor schemes. You can disable the view of certain parts to see where the citadel armor is (the citadel is on the other side of that, as you might expect :Smile-_tongue: ) - this should give you some base idea about where to find the citadel.

2. Go to training room, set the ships you want to citadel as immobile bots and do some experimenting with ranges, angles etc (preferably shooting one turret at a time to have a better idea about where your shells actually land each time you get that citadel)

 

All that said, I'm pretty sure that reliably scoring citadels on BBs is hard, even for Moskva. Apart from Yamato, BBs tend to have their citadels located in a submarine a couple hundred meters below the keel*...

Moskva penetration is roughly 500mm@5km, 400mm@10km, 300mm@15km.

You can check armor values in the game client. You can figure out the rest.

If you don't know how to citadel BBs with Mosvka, then I'd suggest not playing that ship in ranked.... 

There's already enough EDIT playing that mode ruining it for people

ty for the suggestions, i knew i had to personally learn in training room how consistently citadel bb.

What i was looking for was penetration graph so I dont have to figure it out from start when there are competent people in this forums who have already done it.

Lord WC gave the rough idea of penetrations so worked with that and it helped a lot.:cap_like:

I did go into the training room for some tests some time ago - and for me the ship has utterly been disappointing: Amagi, Izumo, Yamato - sure. Everything else you can citadel with a lot of buts and ifs and maybes .........

 

Yeah, I just wanted one thing: Citadel broadsiding scum in balancedboats -  thing is, this cruiser cant do that so I havent even played a single pvp match in that ship yet out of  sheer disappointment. I

 

ts not like the gameplay itself looks exiting enough to really warrant further interest.

Forgot about Iowa, Montana, NC, Conq, Alsace and Republique. Even German BB's some times if the stars align. But the USN ones are EZ. The others take practice.

I usualy try to citadel them below the gunturrets, as the central citadel is mostly below waterline, and Moskva has flat trajectory shell's.
