7.2 Size Damage wrote:As when attacking minifigs, General Damage must first exceed the target’s Armor to have any effect. If it does, the target Creation takes one point of Size Damage, represented by sticking a colored Damage Pip to a prominent spot on the Creation or its baseplate. Black or red 1x1 bricks are the usual choice for Damage Pips, although other elements may be used for convenience or better visibility.
When a Creation takes a point of Size Damage, it remains the same physical size, but it receives disadvantages as if its effective Size were reduced by one inch. (Any potential advantages that would result from a smaller Size, such as a decreased targeting bonus for attackers, are ignored.) The weapons and devices the Creation can activate during a turn, as well as the Creation's maximum Momentum in a Charge attack, are decreased as if it were one inch smaller. Additionally, its Move is decreased by 1" (to a minimum of 1"). As the Creation takes further points of Size Damage, all of these penalties are cumulative.
Most importantly, if a Creation's effective Size is decreased below the minimum requirement for its Structure Level, its Structure Level is decreased to match, making badly damaged Creations even more vulnerable. Surface Elements and moving parts whose Structure Level is relative to that of the main Creation are also weakened accordingly, to a minimum Structure Level of ½ and Armor of 1d6.
If Size Damage is enough to reduce a Creation's effective Size to zero, the Creation is destroyed in the manner that seems most appropriate. Towers collapse, spaceships explode, whales go belly-up, zeppelins burst into flame, and pirate ships sink to the briny bottom. Creations of Size 1" (and Vermin of Size 0") are destroyed on the first point of Size Damage.

Would I subtract those two from the vehicle's size (6"), causing it to lose the number of weapons it could use in one turn, or would they subtract from its size rating, leaving it only a size 1 build in terrible shape?

Size Damage doesn't affect Structure Level until the Effective Size is too small to support it. A vehicle needs to be 3" or larger to have a Structure Level of 3. So in this example, if the Effective Size is reduced to 4", there's no effect on the Structure Level.
If it's reduced by two more points to an Effective Size of 2", then the Structure Level is also reduced to 2, because that's the highest Structure Level you can have at Size 2".Ben-Jammin wrote:Now suppose that my mighty tank just got hit by an ATGM, and its armor roll wasn't so mighty, which cost it two structure points in damage.

I don't really know what you mean by "structure points" and "size rating." Vehicles only have Size and Structure Level, and they have Effective Size which is their actual Size minus any Size Damage.
So here's what the tank looks like at each level of size damage:
No Size Damage: Effective Size 6", Move 8", Armor 3d10, can fire 12" of weapons per turn
1 point of Size Damage: Effective Size 5", Move 7", Armor 3d10, can fire 10" of weapons per turn
2 points of Size Damage: Effective Size 4", Move 6", Armor 3d10, can fire 8" of weapons per turn
3 points of Size Damage: Effective Size 3", Move 5", Armor 3d10, can fire 6" of weapons per turn
4 points of Size Damage: Effective Size 2", Move 4", Armor 2d10, can fire 4" of weapons per turn
5 points of Size Damage: Effective Size 1", Move 3", Armor 1d10, can fire 2" of weapons per turn
6 points of Size Damage: Destroyed
