I got that idea, but that does put a big load on the Game Master to figure out how to hand attacks and damage.

That is interesting you mention the .50 caliber machine gun, as I was thinking that might be a good standard or starting point to work from for penetration. I have those armor-penetrating curves already to go. Plus armor penetration for 20mm and up.

By the way, keep the dialogue going if possible, Infojunky.

RPGs are a totally different story. Their mechanic of penetration is the shaped charge, so a different approach is needed to break up the penetrating jet.
