First, Ive come to the conclusion that the Alabama is pretty much a mini Missouri when it comes to XP and Silver. 

Second, until today I didnt think it was possible to Citadel a Tirpitz. I did it in my Alabama and now consider it a personal achievement.

'Bama is a great ship. Great maneuverability, fast guns, fast turret speed.

 

The only downside is the slower shell speed, but it can clear King Kong peaks with its higher arc, and once you get the longer lead figured out, you can break things. Do not bow camp in it, this should be played like a battle cruiser imho. Great ship, breaks my heart to see tomatoes play it like they do the NC (which is also ... nm)

The German BBs can be citadeled from range or at very close range. Far away its a lot of luck.

Sounds about right. At those ranges the turtleback is least effective and the angle of shot can go right through, if you hit the ship in the right place. It's RNG but doable.

Funny you mention that. Played a game in Hindy last night, and got a cit on a Tirpitz at about 10km, while pummeling his superstructure. That certainly gave me pause for a second lol.

Maybe it's a KM vs. KM thing. Also got a cit on a Gneisenau at about the same range, but bow on, with a Konig....

At range the turtleback is useless to plunging fire.
