Lyon guns better than I thought? Armor models bugged?

I have been a little shocked at the performance of Lyon's guns in the last few days. In Randoms I put two cits on N Mex broadside at about 11 kms in consecutive salvos. In Hermes I cit a Tirpitz at 11 kms, again broadside. And then in Coop just now I put a cit on a slightly angled Gneisenau, which was the first time I think I have ever cit a Gneis. Are Lyon's guns good? Am I just having good run of luck? Or are the armor models bugged?

It may have more to do with the number of guns... I find firing 16 shells at pretty much anything seems to get better results....

I've also had full salvos that manage to do only 950 damage - one overpen....

Sample size, low amount of battles / volleys vs high amount of barrels per volley.  I'd say luck is what happened here.

Its just that the Lyon has so many guns, your literally bound to hit something. I was able to double cit a North Carolina from 14km with the ship :)

So the more barrels you have the more citadels you get? I'm not sure that is how it works.

 

I am sure there is an armour model bug. Here is a screen cap of me citadelling a Tirpitz in my Fiji.

I've citadeled a Bismarck with Prinz Eugen, but that was a long time ago.

It's a really fun ship for when you want to play a risk  vs reward playstyle. Tanky? Not especially, but you can extract yourself from sticky situations.

 

I'm keeping it: my Tier 7 DERP.

Lyon/Normandie do have 400mm of penetration at 12km.

The more dice you roll, the more chances for a natural 20.

That said, they did change the way that terminal ballistics work in this game, and this could be a side-effect.

french has longer arm time fuse on their AP, so may be that helps get cits on  german  BB.  I've seen it happen as well at least in operation.

My favorite moment was when I got 15 overpens with 1 salvo. Good damage, but if it had rolled full pens instead of overpens it would have been glorious

Actually ended up getting the Lyon from a crate mission yesterday. Only played a single co-op game to get a feel for it, but the guns seem seriously OP so far...multiple cits seem quite easy with this ship.

I know my cruisers do not like them...

From what he originally said, you could infer that if you wanted to citadel a Kurfurst with a black swan all you had to do was shoot a lot. We know that this is not the case because there are other factors at play.

Yeah well I choose to not be a stupid idiot and understand that there's more to play than just volume of fire alone. But everything else being equal and using capable enough guns, more volume of fire allows for more chances.
