Ok APDS ammo (SRII pg 277 - I don't own SSCII)
APDS ammo halves the Ballistic Armor Rating and Barrier Ratings (when firing
through, only). Vehicle armor reduces the power of APDS ammo by one-half its
rating (round down) and reduces the Damage level by one level.

Ok - I don't get the Vehicle armor part

1 does APDS 1/2 the armor value (since it is a barrier) then get its
own value reduced for damage purposes. Then damage level is reduced by one
level like normal

ie - car b=3 armor=6 bullet 8M APDS
armor = 3 -> bullet is not reduced to zero
so B=3 armor=3! reduce 8M/2 - 6 = -2 => 2 -1 level
so damage = 2l resist dice 3 bod + 1/2 armor
of either 3 or 6

2 does 1/2 get halfed then checked vs armor
b=3 armor=6 bullet 8M APDS
so b=3 ar=6 bullet 4L not larger than ar=6 no effect
