Missile can't pass trough the shield, put a fighter with a short range missile launcher under a shield and you will see the missile explode instantly went fired (and hit the shield BTW).

It seems one of your mods would disagree. As you know, there was only one enemy attacker.

Error!
The actual weapons is under the shield ^^

The slot position is under the shield but the hardpoint is on the ship.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by that.

I have seen many ships, especially vanilla, destroyed by frigate/cruiser weaponry, without the shields ever failing.

It's like the Grand Goremaul

As you can see, the weapons circle is far away from it's location on the ship.
In the case of beam weapons, if the circle in below the shield, it bypass it.

True and false at the same time.
If you are outside of a shield bubble, you can't damage the ship below with a few exceptions:
1)If you use radiation weapons that can damage the shield, the enemy don't have any armour, there is a chance that the radiation effect directly hit the hull
2)If the ship use multiple shield generator, there is a big chance that one of them "fall" before the other. If there is 4 generator on the ship and one of them run out of shield point, any weapons able to damage the remaining shield will see 1/4 of is damages (on average) striking the hull/armour (3/7 if there is 3 shield gen out of 7 ; 5/29 if there is 5 shield out of 29...)
