Its either it hit the angle area to caused the shell to hit downwards or it armed after the superstructure to inside the citadel.

Yamato has fairly high citadel. So its probably Rare occurrence or RNGesus gave you to punish this guy.

I also got "hard to believe" citadel in a match yesterday... Nurnberg double cit a Pyotry Veliky using HE at 14.5km. Something in the past I can't achieve even when using Koenig AP at broadsiding 8km, 0 knot Pyotr cause they're always said "non-penetration" (lost karma and called a "noob" after that,,... haha XD)

Pytor Veilkiy has some section of exposed citadel room of 38-mm between her turret X and Y that can be penetrated by German 150-mm HE shells after the IFHE rework.

Ouu alright, so the IFHE rework make normal (without IFHE) german HE shells penetrate deeper. Thanks for the info 😁

All German ships and All British BBs are 1/4 penetration value. (In a way, they have built-in IFHE, but without the -50% fire penalty.)

 

It may take some time to get use to the information but I hope this helps.

Just now in Petro i got a very odd cit on a Yamato.

Yammy was facing away from me and at 16 degrees angled, range about 10km.

I shot for superstructure but got a citadel around the deckline near the rear turret I think. 

I know Petro has improved AP pen angles, but not that improved. I should no way have been able to get a cit, but I did. :Smile_amazed:
