There are more types of armour in CSC. Armour can also be personalised by adding components.

Having additional options in another book does not support this decision at all.

I don't see the problem? You get an armour for max kCr 10, and there are plenty of choices and personalisation options to choose from.

The problem is that in the core rules the limit is 10K and there is no way, using just the core rules, to min/max that since, depending on TL, there isn't ONE set of armor that fills that 10K.

The OP is missing the fact that Mongoose allows layering of armor in addition to the options on pp88-89 of the core rules.

If the OP reviews those two ideas, this should no longer be an issue.

Was hoping this would be an actual errata thread, rather than someone nitpicking about how they would have written the rules differently.

Agreed. Has Mongoose released any actual errata yet? Anything along the previous errata that DonM had been compiling?

They update their PDFs for people to re-download. A new printing of MgT2 hardcover books shipping soon will have updates. Maybe their site will have the changes made that we can download?

Just downloaded the version copyrighted in 2016 from Drive Thru. Mongoose still does not indicate how much explosive is required to achieve the listed results.

This is not about "I want it this way", this is a clarity issue. Does it make sense to you that (since they don't say different) 1 KG of TDX does the same damage as 10 KG?

They have a historic reluctance to issue errata docs, instead preferring to update the original material, a policy leading to people rebuying dead tree.

If one has the PDF, they do tend to just replace the original there.

The weight of a TDX explosive is negligible, is how I take it to mean. It doesn't add much to your carry weight inventory.
