Guns were all aimed and loaded with 10 rounds of AP. Dealt 2820 damage with 1 full penetration, 6 over-penetrations and 1 ricochet.

Did I aim too high or too far to one side? Or is RNG just doing its thing? :fish_panic:

I'm wondering about the angle of the shot. You guys aren't full on broadside. I wonder if that could have made a difference.

Oh and +1 for the thread title i like. Made me snicker. :cap_haloween:

I think you aimed a little high.

 

EDIT: If you pause it just as the shells hit, it looks like only one shell went in at the waterline (green). The next lowest shell (red) seems to be substantially higher and everything else looks like it went into the upper hull or superstructure.

Aimed a little high, and he was pretty close. Another kilometer or two out and you would have seen better results.

I also suffered the AP Over Pen problem but now I have all my AP rounds inspected.

That happens sometimes. A little high, but also bad RNG. :(

That sounds about right. Looking at the mini-map now, I've noticed we were moving towards each other slightly. Still a bit salty, but it was a win so all is good. :P

I'd suspect the full pen was higher than you think.

Looks like the 6 overpens worked as normal overpens - 6x 470 = 2,820. Your normal penetration seems to have been eaten by a module for no damage, meaning likely higher up on deck into an AA gun or similar module.

The shot group lands high, with only the one in citadel area as all mentioned above. Because its not in you tube i cant slow it down, and resolution is crap on my phone. So i cant judge the aiming point. Disperaion isnt too bad though, they clustered pretty well.

Did anyone see which shell was the ricochet?

If it was the waterline one, that would be my guess that the angle was just far enough off....

I concur that the shot group was a bit high.  A little lower into the water, and a good number of those shots would have penetrated into the citadel.  It is possible that the rickochet was a high shot that bounced off the deck due to the narrow angle caused by the arc.
