I don't know how, but I was playing a game and I one shot a full health destroyer with my secondary gun. I hit its mag and it went from 100 to dead instantly. Was amazing. Appreciate carrier secondaries!

Has anyone else done this?

Long time ago in a Bogue. It does happen from time to time.

Another somewhat rare achievement for a carrier is Die-Hard.

Got myself one with the Hiryu.

Not with a CV, but my Pepsi's secondaries once detonated a full HP DD. I don't know who was more surprised, me or him.

Lol that is why at least on tiers IV-VI I equip my CVs with Basic Fire Training skill in addition to the usual CV Captain skills since on those smaller maps having a bit of extra close quarters Defense can prove valuable. On the high tier maps it's a lot less likely since attackers will often stay 8km or greater in distance when killing a CV, but low tier between the maps and DDs with short range Torpedoes they will come up nice and close lol.

Also have accidently gotten into point blank range duels with enemy CVs where we end up side by side 4km or so apart and Secondaries are blazing, we are throwing planes at each other and the AA guns are going as well. Strange things happen in battles with Cyclones that's all I have to say lol.

1st of all welcome to the forums (surprised nobody else noticed this was your 1st post...usually the community is up on welcoming new posters).

I don't play CVs often but have had 2ndary detonations on DDs before in other ships...but I'm close to 10k random battles so that's not surprising).

That was a detonation that caused that & it can happen to anybody at any time from any type of armament unless they have the anti-detonation signal equipped (you get 10 of those every time you get detonated).

Especially annoying when it happens to a full life higher tier BB.

The meme "fun & engaging" has sarcastically (of course) evolved from the frustration of the detonation occurring to (especially) full life ships but it can happen at any time to any ship type.

I was playing my Ryujo once and we had an enemy DD do everything right.  Slipped perfectly through our lines undetected,  had me lined up dead to rights.  He got close enough to get off his torpedo's and I was frantically trying to dodge...when my secondaries detonated him.  I apologized to him in chat because man,  that sucked.
