Max Saturation Does 0 Damage?

So I just took out the Mino into a training room and tried out shotting a Republique to death with my AP from 12km range.  I was dealing massive damage for a while and then my damaged dropped to half damage as I would expect from saturation but then after that...  Well after I got it down to a bit over 2k health I became totally unable to damage the Republique with my guns no matter where I shot him from bow to superstructure to upper belt to rear and I got another I want to say 100 or so pens on the Republique that dealt a total of 0 damage.

Is this how things are supposed to work?  As it sort of feels like a bug to me?  But I don't really understand the saturation mechanic fully anyways.

Yes, max saturation means 0 damage under certain circumstances.

Good to know.  Feels a bit odd though that with that system a Mino can't kill a Republique from full health to 0 with it's guns.  Mind you this has NEVER been an issue in game but still feels odd.

Overpens still deal damage.

A good farmer never kills his target, instead leaving that to others … 

This is the play WG favors and always will

As @Kizarvexis said. But note that saturating the mid section also has an additional effect on saturation. I can't recall exactly though, so I will direct you to the wiki

Speaking of Torpedoes, I don't know if Udaloi can still torpedo itself.  It used to back in the day :Smile_trollface:
