A non-penetrating hit...for nearly 4k damage?

Single hit on an Ibuki failed to penetrate but still did nearly 4k damage.

 

What? I know there are penetrating hits that do 0 damage, but this is the first time I've seen/heard about this.

AP can hit multiple times.

Although, that's the first time I've seen a triple over penetration

My guess, you bounced off something like a turret, then the shell went through the deck it into the hull.

 

I've had similar happen with over-pens. You can over-pen the outer hull(probably something like a torpedo bulge), but have the shell detonate inside the inner hull, giving you a 33% pen. But only the over-pen registers.

 

 

Or, it could just be that the ribbons are wonky. I've been advised to not trust them. :unsure:

Shattered on one of the internal armor bulkheads most likely, the damage is counted as non citadel pen, but the ribbon given is shattered since it shattered internally. 

Non citadel pen AP damage from tirpitz is :

11,600*.33 = 3828

Could be a bug, could be a really lucky shot!  I wouldn't trust the ribbon completely, they're pretty good but from time to time I get ribbons that do not match what I saw with my own eyes.
