Can someone explain this one to me? Never have I seen or been blessed enough to receive a non-damaging torp.

My best guess is it struck a section that was so saturated it dealt zero damage??

It's a great trick in BBs to avoid dying to torp salvos.  Just have them all hit your bow.  Damage saturation kicks in pretty quickly.

That, or maybe it was a point blank hit before the torpedo armed. Did you rush anyone at point blank distances? 

 

I don't think it'd show up in his detailed report if it never actually armed anyways.

Look at the screencap - it certainly wasn't torp bulge reduction on a tier 5 DD, and it wouldn't have caused a flood if it struck before arming.

iChase did a video on this like a year ago, got division mate to HE saturate the bow of Shima then took multiple 0 dmg torp & gun hits in the bow.

 

Edit: I think this one

There are these things called Torpedo Bulges that are meant to help protect the ship from Torpedo damage lol.

Torpedo bulges are a flat reduction in damage, and only on the part of the ship that never saturates. Bulges are never the reason for zero-damage torpedo hits.

lol.

The reality is that a torpedo hit on a destroyer's bow(or a cruisers, in many cases) would have blown it off. Ergo, you don't take torpedo damage there because in normal terms, the bow isn't there anymore.
