I see no issue or need to make shields less resistant to torpedoes or to buff torpedo damage at all.
Torpedoes do excellent damage to bare hull after the shields have been lowered by energy weapon attacks imo.

The only correction that should be made is that shields should protect against torpedoes based on thier strength at the time of the attack.
A sliver of shields barely in place should not offer full resistance to an attack.

On a side not I was under the impression that combat shields where a spinoff of the deflector technologiy that protects a ship while in space from high velocity impacts.
