Firing AP from my Alsace at a mostly broadside BB (Republique). As normal most of my shots missed (I get LOTS of straddles). The ship vanished prior to my rounds arriving so I looked elsewhere and then a Citadel ribbon pops up with no icons for any hits (no pens, shatters, overpens or bounces). Not sure how much damage it did as I could not see the target at the time and wasn't watching my damage total closely. How can you hit a citadel with AP without hitting the ship?

The citadel ribbon counts as its own hit ribbon, a citadel hit doesn't come with a separate hit ribbon.

Right, but normally you get a Shell Pen icon too. I've done this with HE vs lightly armored targets and assumed it was a near miss with the ship in the blast radius.

So it does not show up in the shell performance row of icons (not ribbons) if it is a citadel?

No. The citadel ribbon is the “hit” ribbon. If you get a full pen that isn’t a cit, you get the pen ribbon.

If u get a citadel hit the citadel ribbon replaces your pen ribbon. You typically see pen ribbons too because other shells from the same salvo pen but didn’t hit the citadel.

No you don't. That has literally never been the case.

It's not a normal pen, a shatter, a ricochet or an overpen, so no.
