What I mean is, in the same way that a Neutronium MK XI Rare isn't +18% resistance and is instead +18 resistance which then gets calculated as part of your total resistance bonus* to give us the percentage we see in game  does APB simply subtract from the target's resistance bonus total, or does it actual reduce the target's resistance by a straight percentage?
*Resistance = 1 – (1 / (1 + Total Resist Bonus)

It's 50 all resists, not 50% off current target resist levels.. this makes APBeta3 a damage multiplier once total resists drop below zero. So, if the target has Neutronium Hull Armor Mk XI with +18 resists and gets hit with APBeta3, then the target's total resists drop to 32, increasing damage taken by 32% while APBeta3 is active.
