This skill improves the damage dealt by your starship weapons by reducing the amount of damage resistance rating your target has. The amount of Hull Penetration you have is directly subtracted from the Damage Resistance Rating of your target when determining how much damage is dealt. Hull Penetration skill provides Armor Penetration to your weapons, which translates into a hull damage resistance rating debuff.
