Gearing has a 21mm armor belt, unlike other destroyers. That armor belt is thick enough to shatter most other HE shells from other destroyers (assuming no IFHE) with the exception of DDs with 1/4 HE pen.

127mm / 6 = 21.2 approx. 
Round it down and 127mm HE has exactly 21mm of penetration, but in order to get past a 21mm armor belt, at least 22mm of pen is required
