I was using Kremlin. Did shoot at Ohio full broadside more than 2 salvos. No citadel. If Ohio shoot at Kremlin like that. Bye bye Kremlin

I suppose it should be fairly easy, even with cruisers. 

Ive shot one for 55k in my Yamato in CB using only two turrets, so with a BB its fairly easy in real situations. I dont know the details of the armour scheme but plowing through the broadside is easy. 

Think the forward and aft citadels will also work, and maybe the two casemates (unlike kremlin, which is largely impervious to those)

Actually, this is kinda funny:

Just a couple of days ago, i was thinking about BB players constantly whining about "OP HE spam, OP Cruisers, OP DDs, OP CVs" and my conclusion was, if we were to remove/nerf all of those, they would certainly target BBs which dont have a citadel... guess i was right :cap_yes:

Ohio eats citadels like crazy being broadside. 

@DFens_666 they'll start complaining about Thunderer, Kleber... Same was when people just got bored with CVs and realised how Kremlin is powerful and started yelling at it.

Because the presence of CVs does not excuse other crap being out of balance.

@Puffin_ It's a Montana so yes, very possible. However it may be trickier from close range with flat arc guns (like Kremlins) since you have to hit exactly at waterline or have enough arc to hit the citadel roof which gets automatically overmatched by any BB caliber.

I was in Ohio shoot two salvos at Kremlin broadside and got 1 overpen each time. He shot me bow in (slight angle), first salvo at least one citadel, second salvo killed me (there was Hindy shooting at me too).

 

In general I consider Ohio bad ship but I am horrible at BBs so my opinion does not count. It eats more citadells than Montana in my experience but that could be confirmation bias.

If the games wants you to have a crap game, it will.

Yeah , people were so mad about cvs that they still didn’t realize how powerful the Soviet BBs are in the first months.
