Has anyone got an explanation for this? I shot a full HP Fuso maybe 140 times for a total of 3k damage. Superstructure, hull, everywhere.

Damage saturation, if a section of the ship is black then that section cannot take any more damage.

Like previous said, either section saturation or you're hiting all the AA and Secondary guns, which if large enough, can entire swallow up an HE blast and prevent hull damage. Also, even with IFHE, you have no chance of penning turret barbettes or the armor belt, which will completely negate your attack. (It will give you a shatter ribbon)

In all seriousness though, unless you have screenshots or a replay we can't see what happened, so we can not help you accurately with the info you've given here. 

 

Edit: don't even know what ship you were using,

Well, like I said, we can't truly help you without visual evidence so we can only guess what the problem may be. (such as you hitting the belt and barbettes) 

 

I would take care to take a quick screenshot in the future, should it happen again.

IFHE won't help you if you strike the Fuso's turrets, barbettes or belt armor.  She's a WWI style Superdreadnought, so her belt armour extends much further than you might think.  You'll have to provide the replay for us to know for sure.

I had a game yesterday with my Belfast using IFHE where I completely wrecked a FUSO. Took it for about 75% of its health and killed it.

From what I could see, IFHE working as advertised.

Best damage game ever in a Belfast at 125k.

Wow Mouse is here! You really got attention now! (That was not sarcastic I'm actually genuinely surprised). But she is right the Fuso is a Super-dreadnought so her armor is very thick and the superstructure on the Fuso can be tricky, if it is stock then there is not much to hit with the HE and any that you do will just overpen due to the IFHE and when she is upgraded the only superstructure that can be damaged reliably is the pagoda-style mainmast and muck like before if you hit that with IFHE you can end up overpenning in a lot.

Thank you for the responses. Does this mean that unless I'm in a BB or shooting torpedoes, a smaller calibre gun is pointless against a fuso? 

 

I play on a mac and have to have potato graphics settings so aiming for a specific part of the ship is going to be hard.

Shoot her in the stern or bow above the halfway point. Thankfully, now you can check the armor profiles of ships you don't own, so go check out the Fuso's armor layout. It'll give you a good heads up on where you can pen with HE on any ship you run into. :read_fish:
