So how does this thing work ?

Let's say that "Surge" the sammy with Granite Shell got a hit from AK-97 (10DV, -2 AP), and he has Armor Vest (9) on him. We've got the situation where:

AP cuts both the Shell and the sammy's Armor ((4-2) + (9-2)) = 9 dicepool + 1 success
or
AP cuts only the Shell, but "does no harm" to the armor ((4-2) + 9) = 11 dicepool + 1 success
or
AR cuts only the Armor, but "does no harm" to the shell ((9-2) + 4) = 11 dicepool + 2 successes

Which one is correct?

AP vs stacked armor is always tricky and not described. I'd recommend Hardened goes first for balance purposes but the GM has the final say.
How am I not part of the forum?? O_O I am both active and angry!
