Devstrike using the Friesland

Ok, so I got just a match where I got a devstrike from the Friesland, im just curious about it. Devstrike only occurs when you destroy a ship with one salvo of shells or torps (which of course Friesland does not have). But how is it possible to get a devstrike in a Friesland? Does an unending fire of the Friesland counts as a salvo?

Did you detonate your victim?

Detonation is the only non-bug explanation.

Nope I didn't, i just sprayed him down until he was dead. I got the devstrike on the Skane btw. Here's the replay, should be on the first few minutes of the game

I think it was a bug.

Perhaps the game thought it was one salvo since you were holding down the mouse button? You can post this in the bug report forum.

Not the first time the Devstrike achievement has been a bit buggy - I noticed this started happening recently. I got a game about a week or so back when I got a devstrike when I shouldn't have. IIrc I torped a guy but he survived on low health, then when my shell salvo finished him off I got the achievement.

That may have been a timer thing IMO, you finished him off quickly enough, like Double Strike having a timer?

As for OP, no idea. Most likely a bug.
