One of the missions is to get 10 citadel hits.  I rarely try for citadels.  I use HE most of the time and burn ships. 

For this mission I used the Phoenix and Omaha firing AP.  1 citadel against a CV, 1 against a BB and 8 against CL.  Both ships have a high rate of fire which allows you more chances for hits and citadel hits.  They are both fast and maneuver well.  Most of the cits came in the 8-12km range.

It's easier at high tier. Des Memes, Minotaur, Moskva, Hindy. go broadside to those and the only limit to citadels is how fast the target runs out of HP.

I just used a New Mexico. Got them all in one match against T5 cruisers. 

Although I have citadeled a Kuma with an Isokaze firing HE... at less than 2km.

I just used whatever I felt like using and got my citadels in short order.

 

Also aim for low tier British CLs. Those poor things get citadelled if someone coughs in the same country. Even with destroyer caliber HE it's not hard to citadel them.

Desperate times call for desperate measures.

 

On the PTS, I have citadeled minotaurs with conqueror HE (not IFHE). That's when I decided it was OP.

A mino that goes broadside to a Hindy at less than 8km... 2 salvo's max to kill it

Hmmm...I wonder. I got at least half of mine with British BB's shooting HE at Tier 4-5 cruisers.

With any BB its easy to get 10 cits. Cruisers vs cruiser its also easy, many players underestimate cruiser AP and only spam HE, bu cruiser AP is really good against broadsided cruisers and BBs.

I got insane number of citadels with the Danae. Maybe I just had a lot of luck; I only played a couple battles in her. Overall, if you're going for a large number of citadels, it's rapid firing cruisers with a focus on AP that you want. So, RN and higher tier USN CA/CLs. Then, just island camp until you find the legendary trove of broadside cruisers that everyone is looking for.

I normally play T4-6.  I play for fun.  I have only played high tier in PT.  I think it was the Minotaur that had such a high rate of fire I had to massage my trigger finger.   lol
