well, not only. parts of the ship will be vaporized as well as several nuclear reaction will produce overheated plasma and gases, all of which can be hardly consider as only "radiation"
also space itself isn't a complete vacuum too. sure, its not very dense, but not totally empty either.

so just as steel armor can be considered as a liquid within armor penetrating calculation so the complete "output" produced by explosion can be considered as a "wave".
