- Armor is used to map the damage done to a unit to a quantity of hit-points to be deducted.
- The default mapping is 1hp lost per 1 damage dealt (hit-point used to literally mean how many hits you could survive)
- Each point of armor improves the ratio to help units survive longer. Each point of armor is EXACTLY equal in how much extra damage it allows a unit to soak up.

I redid the table in excel and i got perfectly consistent effects, what ever variation he appears to have there must be an rounding error some place.
