Hmmm, that's weird.  Have always seen all the guns raise or lower in unison.  Probably a graphical glitch of some kind, but kinda cool in a way.

Nope. Destroyed turrets. Repeated hits from stray AP into the side of the turrets disabled them, then killed them. That Montana has no functioning turrets anymore.

Oh, okay.  I guess the glowing metal should have given that away.

It would be nice if there were a couple of models for destroyed turrets, perhaps even ones with the barrels shot away. If you do ever take 2 turrets destroyed it's pretty jarring that they look destroyed in exactly the same way.

That'd be nice. Personally though I'd rather that if a ship has taken a serious hit to the superstructure that masts would fall over, etc.

I had a match yesterday where a Montana of my team did indeed say, "Hi!" to a once, near full HP Henri IV.

We call that "sending a friend request". :Smile_trollface:

I received a friend request from a Montana today.  Blap!  Near full health to zero in one shot.  So I sent a confirmation to confirm our friendship in the form of "Its just a flesh wound" from my Neptune torps.  

Interesting seeing all 4 turrets on the Montana with the center guns pointed up.  How many shots did it take to damage the 4 turrets?

I looked up that Henri IV player after the match, he was actually really good with it.  But... High Tier, you make a mistake, don't be surprised if you don't get a second chance.

Huh, well ain't that a thing. 

I heard of a Minotaur knocking out a Yamato turret in live battle before.  I'm surprised you killed all those turrets but I suspect it wouldn't happen if it were fighting back. :cap_look:

All it takes is shooting the side of the turret.  If the BB isn't paying attention it can happen pretty easily.  Two pens = dead turret.  In a Des Moines that's you having your guns facing anything but the Des Moines for 5.5 seconds.

At least it wasn't the middle finger,    I mean barrel.
