Default Ship's armor

Okay, as near as I can tell, the maneuver drive doesn't care how massive a ship is. It only cares about volume. Agility cares about mass, but it's absurdly hard to get any decent agility out of a ship. And, armor doesn't affect volume. It seems to grow outward from the basic hull - which should have some impact on the maneuver drive since it cares about volume but doesn't.

So, what exactly keeps a person from slapping as much armor as he can on anything, other than cost? Or am I reading this wrong?
Comments made are for the purpose of offering alternative campaign settings for consideration. The writer acknowledges that Traveller is intended to emulate certain common science fiction tropes and that, in the course of emulating those tropes and providing a better playing experience, some liberties must be taken with science. No statement by the writer should be interpreted as constituting a criticism of the game on that basis ... except for that bit about Virus. Dude, really?!
