Could anyone tell me what skills are involved to anchor a citadel hull. I can't seem to find any reference to it anywhere. Is it a case of, if you can build it you can anchor it ?

Is it Anchoring from 1 to 5 ?

From the EVE (Online on the website, not Online in the EVE Online game program client that is, and is "on your computer" online? If your computer is on, the data on it is said to be online. Off-line data includes data on you computer if it is turned off, or, hard-copy printout... As if...)

As if returned from Google St.Pat's day search:
while Searching for
"eve online anchoring skill"
on the first search and within the first search result on page 1 of it.
Citadels can only be deployed by members of a player owned corporation.

Only a Station Manager, Director, or CEO of the player owned corporation may deploy a citadel.
Citadels can be deployed anywhere in the system as long as it is 1000km from another
structure and 1000km from a celestial.

How to deploy:
1 to 4.

Click "Anchor" for an Anchor.

Now, I deliberately do not include the other part, not so that potential new enemies can start the sov warfare procedure,
but so that you can get blowed up if you don't read it for yourself.

[None, as in how much air does anchor have]

Also no mention of Anchoring from what I read, and I didn't read either.

No mention of Anchoring citadel(s) from what I read, or didn't read rather.
Building used to work better by single unit before being linked as single units after the first one.

None of the EVE Online cases are a case of, if you can build it you can anchor it.

Yes, in this case, you can built it
(Outpost Construction, Skill at constructing outposts.) and
it you can build it, you can anchor it.
Not the other way around.
But the new citadel will be able to make those, like the Raitaru citadel Engineering complex.

Part 6:
Citadel Skill Requirements?
So I was thinking: What's the skill requirements for owning/operating the new citadels?

That's not the question.
The skill to own the citadel is zero,
and the skill to operate it or , make it function rather,
also are not the same skills required to anchor it ,
or to have built to anchor with what skills.

Edit 6:
Part 7:

This skill category contains skills involving the anchoring and utilization of deployable structures of all sizes, from player-owned starbases to citadels. These skills also allow the control of starbase and citadel weapon systems.
Anchoring says nothing about Citadel.

If you can build it, you can definitely anchor it - the outpost construction skill requires Anchoring 5 as a prerequisite. As far as I can see CCP has dropped the need for anchoring skill for the Upwell structures - it isn't mentioned in the info sheet.

You will not be able to anchor a structure while a member of an NPC corporation. You need to be in a player corporation with the CEO, Director or station manager role.

As far as I know, no skills are required to anchor a citadel or engineering complex.
