AH! Yes, I understand your point now. You're coming at it from a theoretical point of view.

In fact, T5 is not triple that of MgT, it's a square root relationship, because Mongoose AV is quite efficient, becoming more powerful than it looks at higher levels. This is due to the way the task system works.

However, that relationship is mappable; my function is MgT AV = 5 + sqrt( T5 AV) x 2.07 (No, I don't remember why the .07 is there, but I do know it came out that way through spreadsheet experimentation). This results in consistency across MgT's armor levels -- more or less to the degree that Mongoose Traveller's own armor levels are internally consistent. Yes, if we had this mapping function when MgT was being written, we could have pinned its AV exactly; however, it turns out they're close enough.

Weapon damage has a related function, which takes dice of damage into account rather than points.

UPDATE: The armor values for MgT 2.0 have a different mapping to those in Traveller5 (or MgT 1.0 for that matter).
