What exactly is it you're having trouble with, concering the armor rules? How armor itself works (IE, how it comes into play during a soak roll)? How it layers/stacks with other armor? How it penalizes quickness/CP only? All of the above?

add all points of balistic rating together. For every two points over quickness, you lose one combat pool. Also, for every point over quickness when you are layering, you get a plus one to quickness tests and a -1 to your quickness for movement.

Next, add up all your impact. Every two points you are over quickness, you lose a point from combat pool.

To find armor ratings, take the highest rating from each catagory plus half the next highest from each catagory round down. Add together to get totals. Helmets, shields and cyberware are then added on top (NO halving) .

That should cover it.
