New player. Citadelled Nelson 5x with Pyotr Velikiy on Co-op. How is this possible?

That's happened. I can't post the 10 second long video because i think the site doesn't allow MP4 files. I've very suprised the sunk an battleship that 2 tiers above than me with single salvo.

You have the penetration to do it from that angle. 

Factor in that you aimed well and got a nice salvo spread and voila.

You got him broadside, and demonstrated why BBs (and anybody else with one) want to keep their citadels hidden.

 

If you look at Nelson's armour layout, you get this:

That's a lot of citadel, and it projects a long way above the waterline - it's something that Nelson is notorious for.

As most other replies have stated - a really well-aimed volley can citadel the Nelson (or other ships), when it is showing that much broadside. 

 

Allow me to toot the horn for the Nelson, which I do believe is still available for freeXP. It can be a very powerful ship when angled correctly - it has big guns for its tier with decent ballistics and penetration as well as the "customary" British HE fire chance and it has a very "potent" heal. 

 

However, it is slow and (as you allready found out) has a huge citadel. Also, it will struggle against CVs (especially tier 8) - but then most ships experience difficulty dealing with CVs.
