I am fairly competent with battleships and can citadel most cruisers when they are broadside. However, I seem to have trouble citadeling most battleships.... even when they are broadsided  to me.

Can somebody help me with this?

Thank you in advance.

Edit: How do you maximize the damage caused to a German

battleship?

For all the BBs( Except German aim at waterline either at the centre or under the guns)

For Germans,

Aim slightly above the waterline and just below the deck level to avoid the turtleback armour.

If they broadside to you and less than 8km, aim at the waterline.

If they broadside to you and more than 15km or long range, aim a bit above the waterline. Hope for plunging shot into the deck armor into the ship's citadel.

 

Note: You'll get rare chance to citadel a German Battleship. Don't hope for it.

If i to see a german BBs. I ll just aim for the superstructure if angled. Citadel-ing a german battleship is hard... but normal penetration hurts.. 

 

Or you can spam HE
