I've seen drones glitch into a sentinel troll ship and kill it from the inside before, so it stands to reason that bullets could do the same.

I can tell the ship in question is from Reassemblers, due to the hexagon factory, Tinkrell generators, and Bee hull mixed with Sentinel spikes and armor.

WHat I can tell how you're getting 1HKO's by small shots is that:
  1. The core is a nonagon, so only one hardpoint connects to the entire ship. That connection breaks = you're screwed
  2. You have 10 vulnerable generators behind your core. They basically cripple your ship when the blow up, and vanilla explosives CAN reach those.
  3. Your melee hull will betray you once that vital connection between your CM and entire ship breaks.

Yeah, might want to add separation between your command core and your generators. See GATC's ConFederation mod for an extreme example of this principle dictating ship design.
