While playing a game this morning I got my biggest volley score with one shot. I one shot killed an Iowa, killing her and getting 76,209 damage points. Ultimately I scored 194,193 damage, but still lost the battle. The shot was a long range plunging shot.

Nice! Those feel great especially plunging citadels. My best was my Yamato quad citadelling a Midway at full speed from 28.5 km (used spotting plane). It is tremendously satisfying.

Did you detonate him or just plant 6+ AP shells into his citadel?

NICE! Well done.

As Lert said was it a detonation or a bunch of citadels?

I got only 1 hit and it was a Cit. I'd put a pic, but I have to leave for work.  I've closed program. Not sure if it was a detonation. Saved screenshot, having rebuilt PC, have to find file. Off to work.

Well congratz. I got me a Cleveland this morning, with a broadside from my Graf Spee, got 1st Blood and D. Strike in Random, got him as he turned. Nothing as amazing as your, but I mainly play Co-Op/Operations, So at least I was amazed.

One shot, surely a detonation. The results screen would have shown it.

I did this once too, with multiple citadel hits. I was actually shocked by it. Yesterday I killed a gnevy with a single shell from my Atlanta...the detonation sounds and 1st blood announcement were so loud it actually scared me ?. I felt so bad I actually apologized to the guy ?

My fav was when the Tirpitz first released. Got a double cit/kill at 31km in my Yamato on a Tirpitz running away from me.

Btw the Tirptiz release was significant because I was in a game vs a Monty and the rest of both teams were Tirptiz.

One shot a Iowa with an Ognevoi, torp to the bow.  Iowa Capt. "wth", I think the battle stopped for a minute as everyone was chiming in... pretty incredible

That clarifies that mystery...1 hit can only be a detonation (at least I hope there's no new armament that can score a 76k+ cit hit w/out a detonation).

Iowa not fun to play, loose a lot of credits for the novelty of it (break even at 137K damage), alternate play with KGV for credit restore and joy of game in general. Worse ship to encounter is Kutzov, will follow you around until you are a cinder.

First time I took out the north carolina I was detonated by a torp that hit under the number 1 turret. Almost quit the line after that.

I find that in Iowa, another Iowa is the easiest ship to get a citadel penetration on. When I see multiple BBs to fire at under 20 km, I'll pick another Iowa (poor skipper) to throw AP at, as a CIT penetration happens about 1 in 4 salvos that way. Don't know why that is, but easier than almost any other T8-10 BB.
