HE damage calculation

I was contesting a cap and ran into a kagero. So I shot and one shell landed on the kagero before it smoked up. After the battle apparently that shell hit did 150 damage. A Z-46 HE shell does maximum 1500 damage and the wiki say a HE pen does 1/3 of the maximum damage, which should be 500. Is the wiki wrong?

If it hits a turret or a torpedo tube it will do 150 damage to the HP pool. If it hits a saturated area it will do 150 damage as well.

Damage saturation works for HE too. If the HP section of a ship is reduced to 0, you do 10% of listed HE damage.

Does that go for AP as well? The odd time I notice lower damage pens against fresh targets.

Is it always a 50/50 split, half to the module, and half to the ship's HP?

The full damage of the pen is dealt to the component and 10% of the shell damage is dealt to the ship if a component is struck.

Yup.  This is put into place so players do not see "zero damage penetrations" anymore. They're not quite there yet.

Ah ok, that makes sense then. 

Love how I'm still learning details 5+ years in! :Smile_great:

No, you did 10% damage to something.  Likely a saturated section.

It doesn't hurt that changes occur constantly.  Up until patch 0.9.9, penetrations against main battery guns netted zero hull-damage.
