Curious as to what might be your highest number of citadel hits you have been credited with in one battle.

Do not care what mode it has been in, PVE, PVP, its all good, you still have to aim and luck has to be on your side.

Over the weekend, got 7 in my Musashi and 15 in my Salem (love that ship!).

Thanks and have fun out there!

I know I got at least ~20 once in a Kitakaze (caught a Neptune full broadside) and have broken 10 in a BB a couple times.

The game doesn't track that stat, but I do remember loving to knife fight other Cruisers with Atlanta and the chain of citadel hits against them are non-stop.  The best part is seeing the panic set in on the target when the damage spikes higher and higher against them, and the shells just keep coming.

 

As a Tier VII, Atlanta can see many poorly armored Cruisers.

Was grinding the T6 Budyonny last week.  I got something like 22 citadels in a single match.  Surprisingly  the Cits I was inflicting while driving my Budyonny weren't resulting in the huge HP chip from the opposing ship that I would have expected.  

which I suppose has me wondering what is the maximum damage you can inflict on an opposing ship when you citadel it -- I mean assuming a  fun and engaging detonation isn't triggered.  I'm not sure I'm interpreting the mechanics described on WiKi correctly.  My take-away from Wiki penetration mechanics article is that a citadel penetration inflicts the max listed damage for a particular shell.  So if a Budyonny's max AP damage for a penetration is 3300, than the damage inflicted by a citadel penetration is 3300.

Until I got the Musashi and Salem, I would only get a couple of citadel hits here and there.  Even though the number that I listed that I have gotten in mine is small in comparison to those that the rest of you have posted, you can still imagine that I am thrilled to be getting so many. Finally.

Good job all....carry on and have fun doing it!

Highest number in one salvo is 7 while in my Musashi.

Highest number in a match is 29 in my Belfast in Narai.

If more people who play Operations respond, you'll see huge numbers coming out of there.  I also had 29 in a Leander in Aegis and I remember somewhere in the upper 30's on Cherry Blossom.  I just can't remember the exact number. 

@Ares1967, @Taichunger and @Lightninger will certainly have more.

Nice work. Aegis is a cit fest if you get a cruiser heavy spawn and can position correctly. My personal best is below, surprisingly its with a dd. Got close to it a couple of time after but most games had a cv in it and they tend to screw up the pattern.

Yep, in Aegis Ive had 41 in Leander, and 40 in Okhotnik back when you could do T5s. Lightninger has even more, tho. My best in Cherry B was in the mid twenties several times in Balti, but they made changes and now i seldom get half that....

29.

 

My Kitekaze vs a Minotaur at about 4 km. We both went around the point of an island on Sleeping Giant- one on each side of the land - and surprised each other. (His last LKP was half way across the map, and his guns weren't initially pointed my way so he didn't know I was there either.) It was a pretty ferocious 25 or so seconds.

 

We commenced to wailin' on each other as there was nowhere to run. He sank me, but I gave better than I got in total damage. One of my team mates got him with a single shot seconds after I went down.

Outside of T1 where they are so easy I had approx 25 in Moskva. Not sure of exact number as I am on road but will check and update later. 

EDIT - Finally remembered to check. 23 in Moskva is my highest outside of T1 (24 in Black Swan).
