The easiest way to earn the Liquidator achievement?

I am stuck on Mission 6 task 8 in the Science of Victory campaign. I am having trouble earn the Liquidator achievement which is to destroy an enemy ship after causing them to lose 40% of their health due to flooding. I have only earned this achievement once in the Kuma but I need to do it in a tier 5 and up ship. Any suggestions.

Play carrier, burn repair with one squad then hit with the TBs and hope RNGesus gives flooding.

Launch a single set of torpedoes at a target to force damage control, so that when the second set hits, they can't repair it. Alternatively, watch the enemy team for someone who is currently under heavy fire and retreating. It's likely that they'll burn damage control to put out fires and what-not. The goal is to have torpedoes hitting the target as soon as the damage control immunity runs out.  

 

Or do what the guy above me suggested, and play CV.

Hosho or Zuiho, time a torp drop to cause flooding for right after a repair ends. 

 

This will no longer work after the upcoming update that removes manual drops from low tier CVs so the average mid-tier CV player will be even less versed in what to do than what they are now.

My last liquidator was a random torp hit on a NC from 20km away in my shima. Frankly you just have to be lucky and catch someone with their pants down and not using premium consumables.

The easiest way to get liquidators is to target battleships.  They have a long (as much as a two-minute) reset timer on their damage control party.  You need a target that isn't being focused for this to work -- your flooding has to be given time to tick away and if the enemy is under attack, they'll die before you can earn your achievement.

Carriers are probably the easiest way to get this achievement. Bait out a BB's DRP with dive bombers, and then hit him with the torpedo bombers.

Thanks now only if earning clear sky's was easy.

It's too bad smart bb players will not repair a fire with torpedo planes around.

I got mine from my ARP Haguro. I lit a König on fire and he put it out immediately. I then sent torps at him and got the achievement.

Yeah, I think IJN CAs are a viable pick for liquidators. A lot of people don't expect those 10km torps.

Your choice of Tier 4/5 IJN DD's, spam torps and one of those hapless Wyoming's will hook you up. Feel filthy when it's in a Kami-triplet with 19 pt captain.

It does require a fairly rare set of circumstance for non-CV players.

1. Flooding that is not repaired

2. No other damage being taken to kill the target before the flooding.

 

#2 probably means the ship is far from combat since a low hit-point ship will usually garner lots of attention from those wanting to finish it off. Some call it kill stealing but it is good strategy to remove ships completely from the battle since, in game, a ship with one HP left is often just as fast and dangerous as one with no damage.

Hey, if you still need help with the achievement. Its a tricky one.

 

Carrier recommendation is a solid one. I would recommend going IJN carries. First use dive bombers to dive bomb a battleship preferably, set them on fire. If you see that fire go out, that means they've used their damage control. Wait until it runs its duration, the duration is different for different factions and ship type so keep that in mind. After that, torpedo them with torpedo bombers and hope for flooding.

 

You can do this with a DD or Cruiser too. Shoot them with HE until they're on fire and then torp them. Its a pretty easy achievement that you'll eventually get from playing a lot.
