Armor Plating: Cost:WS+1CP Effect:+Armored to area Notes:No aerial flight or alternate movement; cost of Move inches doubled
(see 3.3: Bodily Protection)
Sections of Armor Plating can be used to protect some or all of a Creation, granting a level of Armored status to whatever area it covers. This protection comes at a cost to the Creation's mobility, however - the CP cost for all Propulsion inches are doubled (9.1: Standard Propulsion), and the added weight of even the smallest patch of Armor Plating makes many types of movement impossible.
Other than moving backwards, a Creation with Armor Plating cannot engage in any form of movement that would occur at Half Speed (4.1: Movement, 9.1: Standard Propulsion). Armor Plated Creations cannot engage in aerial flight, although spaceflight is allowed. They also cannot jump, although they can be dropped from orbit or launched from Launchers instead.
Attackers firing at an Armor Plated Creation should specify which part of the Creation they're attacking. Unless they are careful to specifically target an un-Armored section, their attack will automatically hit any section of Armor Plating that is visible and within range, no matter how small or unlikely.

So for calculating base CP value (Size x Structure Level) do we just split the difference and treat it as an SL3?
