Im trying to create a Warmeck in the chapter 'Warmeck Construction in the 2089 core rulebook. (p196)

I dont understand the armour tonnage. It states that armour will take up mass within a mechs total payload but what is the mass of armour? Also in the maximum armour tonnage table is it the figure before the points. IE a line of the armour tonnage table would read:

Chassis Mass Head Torso Left Arm Right Arm

50 1(26/15) Unlimited 1.5(39/22) 1.5(39/22)

LEft Leg Right Leg

2(52/30) 2(52/30)

So I guess I go back to where i chose the chassis size so if I chose the chassis as mass 50 then I would look at the line in the armour tonnage which reads chassis mass 50 . This is the line that I need. BUt take a look at the head? WHat does the 1 stand for before the composite/steel points and what is the mass that it is supposed to take up. I guess im either thick or stupid cos I have spent hours trying to figure this out. I mean in the Warmecks chapter you can buy armour in fractions but how is this calculated. i mean how would you calculate 3.9 tons of armour for a mech? WHat is 1 ton of armour??????
