Anthroform drones are noted in the rules as being able to use metahuman gear.

This isn't actually detailed in the books as far as actual rules mechanics, but in the past some of the book authors have indicated that as far as armor, you should pick the best armor rating between the integral and worn armor and just use that. Is this the case for Missions? Does the Hardened quality of integral armor apply at all if the worn armor has a higher rating?

Thanks,

This will get into some wonky stacking rules, but here we go:

Let's say you have Drone Armor 6 wearing an Armor Jacket (12)

You keep the best parts of each armor.

So you have Armor 12 with 6 counting as 'Hardened Armor'.

So if hit with 0 AP, you roll 12 dice and also take 3 off of the original DV.

If you are hit with -4 AP, everything gets reduced by that -4.

So your Jacket is giving you 8. Your Drone Armor is giving you 2.

So now you have Armor 8 with 2 counting as 'Hardened Armor'. You roll 8 dice and take 1 off of the original DV.

Clear as mud?
