Anyone have an official Dev reply about how this skill actually works? Searching these forums and other forums shows conflicting answers. In some versions these bleed-through is a percentage of the damage being split between the shields and armor (Making skill level V bad) and in others the bleedthrough is extra damage that gets applied to both (Making skill level V slightly more useful).

You must be looking in the wrong threads, as it has been tested. If you doubt, test it yourself.

RESULTS:

BLEED-THRU HAS A SMALL PERCENTAGE CHANCE OF OCCURRING. MOST OF TIME BLEED-THRU DAMAGE WHEN BELOW 5% DOES NOT OCCUR!
DAMAGE TRANSFERS, THERE IS NO ADDITIONAL DAMAGE. BLEED-THRU DAMAGE IS APPLIED AT ARMOR RESIST RATE,
SO IN THAT HIT WHEN BLEED-THRU OCCURS, SHIELD TAKES LESS DAMAGE WHEN ARMOR DAMAGE OCCURS.

Tried as you suggested. tried 5 different times for about 20 mins each time. Have not been able to get bleedthrough at all. Have TSM at skill level 4 and was being shot by a missile ship (Since easier to know exact damage). Have not been able to get any bleedthrough. Guess I have been unlucky so far. Will see if I get a chance to run some more tests.
