First time i see this happens. Hipper had only 6k left when I shot. 

I had citadeled him twice, but it was about two minutes earlier (the other citadel was on the Georgia).

I have no idea what the mechanics behind getting a dev strike are but so far as I can tell (this has happened to me before). If take off a majority of a ship's health (or all, I'm not too sure) in a few salvos then it still qualifies as a dev strike, though don't quote me on that one.

I got a Dev strike last night on a DD that only had 1-2k hp left and I hadn't hit him before. Weird stuff happening.

Got a pink too from apparently torping a DD that was at my stern. Checked the after battle and did roughly 4k damage to him, how I have no idea.

My guess is the game glitched so you got a little extra experience. You might want to put in a ticket but I am also going to guess that this is random and near impossible to recreate.

I believe this is a known issue since the last patch. Devstrikes getting handed out like it’s an Oprah episode

In theory: 

Devastating Strike

Destroy an enemy ship with a SINGLE artillery salvo, torpedo salvo, or aircraft attack by causing damage over 50% of the destroyed ship's normal HP.

DevStrikes are bugged for several patches already. Sometimes you get them when you shouldn't, sometimes you don't get them when you should.

Kitakaze torps are quite mean. Depending on what health he was on before you started, where you hit him and which torps you used, 3 x IJN torps (especially if outside the torpedo belt) and a flood (especially if it was double) taking more than half an Alsace's health doesn't seem beyond the bounds of possibility.

That is the description, yes, but it’s actually a matter of dealing that amount of damage in a certain short period of time. Case in point: I’ve gotten Devastating Strike and Close Quarters Expert achievements at the same time when I’ve landed a big salvo and my secondaries dealt the killing blow.
