lol most of IJN CA citadel are on the back part. (from the smoke stack to her guns) they are really vulnerable on plunging fire on those area as be careful and try not to get hit on those part.

 

i got citadel before by 1 yamato shell on that part, it really hurts and i cant even repair the damage because it was citadel damage.

Actually, all cruisers with repair party can heal 33% of citadel damage. BBs only get to heal 10%. UKCL gets to heal 50% (effectively same as normal pen).

well i still choose not to repair it since there are barely any HP to repair. most of the time i save them for fire damage.

Great, now battleships aren't even allowed to citadel a cruiser at about 12km as it seems.

I once citadeled a Bismarck bowing off at me with my Tirpitz in ranked, probably hitting the turret. And I wasn't reported, and I didn't see a post complaining about Tirpitz being so OP and should be nerfed.

Some people might make a tasteless joke about your soft, bulbous flanks being penetrated by a large barrel, but I certainly won't. Because I'm classy.

Unless you have the flag that gives back 20% health so in total you get 30% HP given to your ships total health.

easy large caliber  AP  is able to citadel CA.CL from any angle because of overmatching the bow and stern armor. 25 mm of stern armor = all shells larger than 14.07 inch will overmatch and go through the stern..

All the BBs above T7 except the sharnhorst could over match 25 mm.
