With the introduction of DSCore (25th Febuary 2019) (Discovery Freelancer Version 4.91 Patch 5), Ship Equipment statistic pages and Ship Equipment pages will not be updated anymore. Or not regularly atleast. They will be kept for historical reasons. DSCore will give you the most up-to-date info you can get about almost everything you need to know about Equipment and Ship statistics.

Armor

Armor upgrades are additional hull reinforcements that can be purchased and added to a ship at most stations, allowing players to trade some of their cargo space for a much stronger hull. Armor upgrades are divided into two main types; the basic "universal" upgrades that require very little cargo space and are often seen on fighters and transports, and the much heavier "heavy/capital ship" upgrades designed for heavy warships where cargo space is no concern. These upgrades are also very expensive; the most powerful of them are rarely seen outside of faction flagships, and are just as expensive.

Note that capital ship armor upgrades, while designed for use on heavy warships, can be mounted on any ship with an adequate cargo hold.
