When i began playing WOWS over 2 years ago, it took me a year to realize a destroyer could citadel a cruiser. It has been since a mission of me, to citadel cruisers with our little pesky boats! The most citadels i got is with blyskawicka. 19 to be precise. And yesterday i got a new personal record=

 

12km with the new Aigle against a Nurnberg. I never expected it. The shell went into a very steep angle. Almost 90 degrees. But at 12km, i scored a citadel!

 

So what is your longest range citadel?

Must be the 22,5 km LOL-pen one I got with a Kongo on an unsuspecting QE in the Estuary map during X-mas. :cap_wander: First ever successful use of the Spotting Aircraft consumable I can confirm. Has never happened before or since. On the downside, I also got reported for hacking tho - Me who hasn't even figured out how to install a filter into the coffee machine yet. :Smile_amazed:

I think a while ago I was scoring a rain of citadels on a broadside kirov at 12km with my Sims. 

(don't show broadside to anything when sailing a kirov, anything can citadel you)

Take your Blyska, find an Emerald, and you will citadel her from 14 km with ease ^^

Neptune citadeling Montana at 10.7km. My personal favourite.

 

I citpened a Missouri some 13km away with the Neptune.

I swear that AP has a mind of its own.
Hitting a poorly armored cruiser in the citadel? Nope shatter.
Hitting a Missouri in the armored deck? Citpen boi !

Just DD or overall? On... I think it was saturday while playing CB scored a 22 with something second flight time citadel on... it was either Hindy or Zao (can't remember which one of those) with Montana, that would be around 31km, don't think I've scored anything at longer distances :cap_haloween:

Kirov is a citadel with guns on it, and it's one of the most specialised snipers in the game. Anyone can citadel you at any range (and many ships from any angle), but on the other side, you can citadel any cruiser and some battleships at any range if they show broadside, but unlike battleships, you can reliably hit at that range.

 

I don't think longest range citadel is interesting for battleships, since most people have gotten those spotter-plane range citadels at one point or another, so it's more a question of which ship has longer range. For some cruisers, especially the Russian ones, citadels happen at any range to any target dumb enough to show broadside. Destroyers, on the other hand, struggle more with long-range citadels.

I landed a citadel hit on a Montana at 15 km in the Minotaur. What? What do you mean she's not a destroyer?

Don't know.

 

From memory one of most amusing I did was whilst sailing an ARP Haruna a year or so ago; hit a Furataka at pretty much max range ~19km. 

It amused me as only scored 1 hit due to the gun RNG but a citadel, the guy started complaining in chat.

My immediate follow up volley scored 1-2 hits and detonated him - oh the salt and reports that followed :cap_wander:

Guys guys guys, nothing to worry about. OP specifically was nonclass-specific in his question.

Khabarovsk, max range on a Mino that thought it's a good idea to gunfight me. He ate 8 or 9 don't remember but was dead very quick.

Got a cit in my Pensacola way back when the Nagamon had incorrect citadel armor, cant remember the range but it had to be at least 12km, also on a Warspite back when it sat too high in the water while again I was in my Pensacola if my memory serves me right, but that time it was really close range. Final case is in my Myoko vs a Bayern. I still have little to no clue as to how I got a Citadel on him, must have been some weird barbett hit or something because that's where most of my shells went. I still have the replay of it even...
