Thunderer HE citadels.

 

That works very good as well, but usually they smoke up very fast. So this is for all those minutes of the match they sit in smoke and just spam your BBs.

This tactic works against any ship in smoke. Smolensk is just more vulnerable due to her low HP pool and cruiser maneuverability. 

Generally anything that forces Smolensk out of smoke will counter her.

I took one out with one salvo from my Stalingrad. He came around an island 10-12 km away and couldn't stop in time to stay inside his smoke. He paid the price.

If a smol is burning you down them his teammates are doing their job spotting. Otherwise smol is underwhelming.

Just shoot it... Even with over pens, its low health pool is a detriment to the survival of the Smol...

I find it ironic, people complain about HE but no afraid to exploit it if it works...

IMO, HE/fire needs to be scaled way down for all high tier ship classes.

It funny, i learned how to calculate fire to inside the smoke, judging from the main batteries "boom".

to add on top:

If cruiser/bb dont have torps, this is the next skill/experiences any players should learn. Sometime, some players will spec their upgrades with Propulsion Modification 1, so that they can accelerate faster by 50%, they can move inside their smoke comfortably ..... This is for player play bb/cruiser to take notice.

 

regards,

European DDs with there rocket sled torpedoes and RDF have made parking in smoke very dangerous. American DDs  have this wonderful smoke but long range radar and these stiletto fish have made them redundant.

The best way to devastate a Smokensk

Tell her that her camo makes her thighs look fat, then leave her for her best friend that has a better set of, ummm, “guns.”

There are two kinds of people in this world, Jeb: Those with loaded guns, and those who post. You, post.

Hey, you asked how to devastate one, not how to merely make one mad!

SAP shells do bad things to CLs.

 

IMO, the big danger from ITA Cruiser SAP against CLs is not just the SAP shell characteristics themselves (bounce angles, alpha damage, sufficient pen)... It's that ITA CAs tend to have good shell flight characteristics.  Do not let Venezia get a good SAP salvo off on your CL.
