There are many types of weapons in the BrikVerse, which means that normal armour won't always cut it. If your tank just has metal plating, well armour-piercing rounds can bust through that without a problem. You need some special defenses to protect your vehicle. Here I'm going to talk about some types of defenses you might use to protect your vehicles or buildings against certain kinds of attacks.
A magnetic field projector can be used to defend against metallic projectiles, plasma weapons, and certain types of particle beams. It projects a magnetic field around your creation that slows down incoming projectiles.
Components are a control computer and a magnetic field projector. CP cost would be based on how strong the projector is, plus a base cost for giving it a half-mind for the computer to automatically target incoming projectiles.
Level one would be that you get to apply a -1dmg modifier against incoming attacks from things that would be affected by a magnetic field.
Cover your creation in polished chrome and it can partially reflect attacks by laser weapons. Eventually lasers will overheat the armour and melt through, but their effectiveness will be diminished.
This applies a -2dmg modifier against laser attacks.
Ceramics are very strong and heat-resistant. They also do not conduct electricity. Therefore, this kind of armour would resist damage from plasma, electric, and incendiary weapons with a -2 damage modifier.
▲ Triangular Hex Armour:
Triangular Hex Armour is a good protection against the supernatural. It also scares dimmies and Jaw-Jaws. -2dmg against magical attacks or attacks by supernatural beings such as BrikThulu spawns. Additionally, any dimmies or Dungan Jaw-Jaws within 10" suffer a -1 skill penalty.
These can stop most attacks, but would not work against lasers, magic, or some kinds of quantum weapons like singularity projectors or space-time disruptors. Like the magnetic field projector you would need controls to operate it.
Lead would be useful against particle beams or radiation cannons. Its density means that most radiation can not penetrate it. -2dmg for Alpha and Beta particle beams, along with radiation weapons like super X-rays or gamma ray guns.
These are just some ideas. It might be better to just use this as inspiration for "What I Say Goes" rolls when dealing with a creation whose armour might be more effective against a certain kind of attack.
