Semi-Armor-Piercing , means LESS piercing than a full AP shell. Aka means that "soft" targets like Destroyers and Cruisers CAN NOT BE OVER penetrated because of that less piercing.

Less piercing means that the majority of a shell's explosion power will detonate INSIDE the target.

If is that so (simple physics) then why the 8 inch guns of the Italian Cruisers SAP shells cause to destroyers of light Cruisers only 400 points of damage the same time 152mm guns of light cruisers of other tech trees HE shells make a lot more direct damage to same targets -NOT included the fire-? Is that something developers forgot to do in their shell power ballance?
