Given that many of us are completing our French Progression in Combat Missions and are required, as part of that Mission, to complete main gun hits, victorious battles, citadels and torpedo hits...what is your go to citadel producing boat?  For me its my tier 5 and 6 UK and KM cruisers.  In the BB category it's my Arizona.  I also have favorites in tiers 7, 8 and 9, but players at that level don't give beauteous broadside targets quite as often.  How about you?

Kirov T5 Russian CL. It has 180mm cannons (biggest of the line until you get them again at t9 Russian), and is guaranteed to easily cit a CL around the t5 range. It is my go to for citadel missions.

My go to ships for citadel missions are heavy cruisers.  I got the 10 required citadel hits for the mission in 3 games on my Charles Martel.  Would have gotten it in one game if I'd played them in a different order because I got 11 citadel hits in the third game alone.  Just run a concealment build and be a little patient and it's pretty common to get opportunities to ambush other cruisers.

Usually I like Fiji and Molotov. But a couple days ago I got 14 citadels in, wait for it... Emerald. (Edit to add: in one game!)

Respects,

my Arizona and the julius caesar for BBs and my cleaveland for CLs. They really need to make a Konigsberg clone premium for a tier V premium for the germans I would buy that in a heart beat

I use Farragut and bum rush a cruiser,  you can reach 20 cit games that way. If they don't predict what you're doing.

Most cits I've ever gotten in a cruiser is 17 with the sharkbait.

Brit t5-6 cl

km t5-6

suprisingly the USS Kidd. I ambush cl coming around an island with ap. Last time I needed cits I ambushed a Pepsi in the kid at 3 km and boom 6 cits in two volleys. I would have felt bad but I have Pepsi.

pepsi can rack cits too. Requires good mm and patience. Last game in Pepsi was 7 cits granted on two emeralds

Atago is great for getting me citadels.  Her or Takao, depending on my mood.

Hmmm.  Maybe not a bad idea, though it would by default have to be the Koln.  There are 3 ships in the class, the lead ship, the Konigsberg, the Karlsruhe, and the Koln.  For obvious reasons, they can't use the Karlsruhe name, so it'd have to be the Koln, which seems fine to me.  I'm normally not a fan of all these clone ships.  But if a clone ship it'd have to be, then a Konigsberg clone seems fine to me.  The K-berg is a nice ship.

Konig. Move in at close range, aim for the waterline, give a grimacing smile, and pull that TRIGGER.

If you really hate it when the 'Citadel' message pops up, sail a Colorado. Get about 1 citadel every 15 games or so. Usually rains 16 inch shells in the water all around the target. Occasionally hits for 1k damage, HE or AP. Haven't tried inertia fuses, those are probably for hunting DD's or something, which the Colorado can't do no matter what. Gets sunk within 49 seconds of being spotted by the Atlanta, every game in which there is an Atlanta. Also makes you contemplate suicide.
