Armour mechanics tweak

Recommended Posts

Current plate carriers could please use a minimum armour class of 4 and all thorax only plate carriers to be class 7(using current armour system)

Basis of my working below:

Class 3 ~NIJ IIIA (Soft Armour stops Pistol calibres(9x21 maybe not)minimum of 5 hits 0 penetration

Class 4 ~NIJIII (Hard armour stops rifle calibres 7.62x51 M80 5hits 0 penetration 

Class 5 ~NIJIV (Hard armour stops 7.62x63 AP 1 hit + class 4 test 0 penetration

Just thought that adjusting the penetration value used in the armour calculations could use a tweak for easier to understand values for all. My suggestion would be as simple as this:

30pen 0% penetration vs class 3, 35pen 50% penetration vs class 3, 39pen 90% penetration vs class 3, 39pen 0% penetration vs class 4 but does armour durability damage is 50%

39pen vs class 5 does 0.1 durability damage, round literally shatters on the armour plate.

30pen against a class 3 has 0%penetration chance on the first hit but still applies it's armour damage ratio. Now each consecutive hit has a % chance to ignore the armour but it would at least feel like it has done it's job. This would obviously require most ammuntion types to have their pen values edited however it now gives you much more breathing room to move the ballistics around over the current system.

Will also mean that when it comes time to do full modular overhaul of armour system the whole unit will be able to be one armour class and then plates can be added with their own armour class.
