So, now what?

 

So, I just got deleted in operations.

Nothing all that unusual about that, except how it happened has me scratching my head. Molotov in it's current configuration has 31,400 hit points. Look at the damage received, just 13,883 yet that was enough to delete my ship. Can't be a detonation as I had the deto flag equipped (always do for operations), so what the hell could it be? A bug?

It seems that damage recieved from Forts/Coastal Batteries are not counted in the Post-Battle Summaries screen.

Yeah, but 17,517 hp from a fort seems a bit excessive to me. I know one of them was still firing at me but wasn't doing much damage. At the time I just assumed it was the stationary Konig who one shotted me, except the result screen says otherwise.

There are at least two forts/coastal batteries in Operation Killer Whale that are perhaps based on the German "Adolf Cannons", German 406-mm naval gun on a single mount. And it can indeed citadel cruisers that misposition sometimes.

You may have also been set on fire by regular, HE-firing forts?

The only fort that was alive and firing was the one behind the small gap nearest to where the Nassau and the DD spawn in  - do you know if that one has the "Adolf cannon"? That would make sense then. I've done killer whale hundreds of times and this has never happened before. Has to be a first for everything.

It would be nice to see the replay so that we can observe as to how things escalated to the point being discussed.

Sure. 2nd to last battle today.

Thing is, knowing now about the forts with 16" guns, and that damage from forts doesn't show in the results (it should really), already explains what happened.

I've also experienced this happen to me but that was way back then when I was still using CA / CL and DD's in operations.
This kind mostly happens on lightly armored targets (CL / DD). No registered deto if it comes from land based fortifications.
You'd be left with only WOW! What happened?

Exactly.

Just watched the replay (first time I ever watched any replay - 2 years of playing this game) - definitely saw at least 1 maybe 2 AP shells come in from the direction of that last fort.

 

Oh well, lesson learned. Kill that damn fort before doing anything else.
