Light Armor Vest
Armor (Building)
TN: 3
Chemical 10%
Structural 10%

Final Product: A light armored vest with space to storage ammo, items, etc. AV 1 to the guts, cargo space equal to Frame size 3 (a rifle), and a weight of just under 11 pounds. Note that the weight can be mitigated by a raise on the construction roll, about 1 pound of reduction per raise.

Each AV uses up 10% of the slots in the frame being armored. 1 slot = 2 lbs of armor.

Step 1 (Sizing): The vest is Frame size 4 to fit the torso. The vest has 54 slots. Human sized cargo space takes 64 slots, and the torso is about half that, so 32 slots need to be dead space.

Slots: 32 / 54

Step 2 (AV): AV 1; 5.4 slots used. This weighs about 10.8 pounds.

Slots: 37.4 / 54

The armor power here has a frame size of 1 so the Construction TN is 4. Raises can improve the AV (costs frame size of total device in slots, or +4) or lighten the armor (-10% slots to mount it, or about 1 lb of lightening).

Overall Vest: 10
Armor Power: 1 Chemical, 1 Structural

Cargo Space: This vest has a cargo space equal to Frame Size 3 (31/2 =15.5 slots).

Slots: 53 / 54

Component Cost
Frame (10 Structural) $20
