The size of those missiles imply that the ship should have been disintegrated into a million pieces.
Most of the ship is empty volume. The gases from any explosive only have to puncture a few holes (as evident) to stop any
disintegration. If you want a ship to be blown into a million pieces, then send a small nuke.
People's intuition is worth nothing. It is based cheesy mass entertainment. For example, the inane billowing fire explosions
in space. There is no billowing in space since there is no air and no pressure to overcome. So any explosion would be like
rapidly dissipating halo. You can see this from the exhaust plume of rockets heading into space.
