I was unabe to find anywhere values for the X and Y (neither on wiki nor here on forums).
Can somebody help?
If shields are up, regardless of damage type, 10% of the hit will bleed-through to the hull (5% if the target has a resilient shield).
Kinetic damage against shields (IE the part of the hit that is applied to shields while a target's shields are still up) is reduced by a huge amount (off the top of my head I believe it's 80% but I'm not completely certain). Non-kinetic damage is applied normally to shields.
