Hi

Can anyone explain this short fuse AP to me?

Tonite l hit the French T-5 CL at belt buckle distance 6 salvos of AP from my Leander to finally kill him.

At least 30% of those were right on the citadel button and NADA! l have not been in this situation with a RN CL before and this kinda shook me up what the hell is with that AP can't pen at point blank on no armor?

Most of my other CL's can pen with IFHE on light side armor.....is there something l'm not getting here?

TY

RNCL AP has a short fuse, instead of standard length.

FR cruisers have spaced armor, meaning RNCL AP will burst outside the citadel, but inside the ship.

as long as you aren't getting any shatters or bounces on the belt, I don't see the need to switch to the upper section.

Yeah you won't do anymore damage by switching, that said aiming a tad high may reduce your number of shells into the water, also some french cruisers have a weird torpedo bulge that i'm told will arm the shells, but shells that burst between the bulge and the belt won't do any damage.

 

Not sure which are affected.
