Depends, if there is no cover, then yes they do, but with cover it is possible for that penetrating hit to be made a glance. Also skimmers moving fast reduce that to a glance.

Not auto-pen, but they don't glance (a glance = a pen with AP1) unless the target is obscured (then it overrules the AP1 effect)

This is made pretty clear in the "shooting at vehicles" section of the main rulebook (which you need ). But Orion has it right. The AP1 rules are also overridden by the rules for skimmers moving fast.
