Splash HE damage that landed just close enough. ;) Looks like he detonated.

This is the one cause of detonations I agree should go away.

Did he detonate? It does look like it. Did he get a detonation on his tm score?

Yes, this was almost certainly a near miss detonation. HE "hit" status and direct pen damage are based on the location contacted on the target ship. No contact, no hit, no pen, no damage. However, the HE shell still detonates on contact with the water, and the blast radius check for module damage is assessed from that spot. Destroyers are relatively small, and their plating is pretty thin, so the HE blast check will frequently get through the armor and contact the magazine hitbox. From there, detonation rolls are possible, and therefore detonation can occur.
