The Armoured Vest is probably the best armour mod available for OpenXcom.

Why? I mean it's only tier one and doesn't even protect from Plasma Fire!

Well for one good reason: It doesn't add weight to your soldier. I mean, face it. Half of the soldiers we send on missions have >30 strength unless if you want to buy 100 soldiers to get 3 good ones that have <40 and 10 good ones that have <30. So having armour that weighs even 6 or 8 (I've seen the armour weight go all the way up to 15 on a mod) means a soldier can carry a rifle and maybe a grenade, nothing more.

So while it's not good armour, it's still better than most armour mods out there.

I think it's only useful against the Men in Black. But it's something!

It's a little useful against Plasma Pistols -the standard early alien weapon- too.
Plasma Pistol does 0-104 damage. Considering an average health of 32, and the shot coming from the front:
- 45 damage to insta-kill kill an unarmored soldier;
- 63 damage to insta-kill kill an armored soldier;
For Plasma Rifles you need that Personal Armor .

It's intended to be a little extra layer of protection for your most promising soldiers, more than an armor that you use systematically on all your troops.
Also given the stats of the Personal Armor, it can't be stronger than this otherwise the Personal Armor would be a joke. IMO.

I fully agree with your analysis.

I actually adjusted the armour's stats a little, but the difference is comparatively minor, so I guess we are of the same opinion.

Sorry Docent I couldn't find the original file archived anywhere, however I cobbled together a replacement based on the mods description so I hope that will do.

The Small Rockets take up only 2 slots and the weight has been reduced.

This mod also includes hand animations from Ivan Dogovich's Improved HandObs Pack v.1.1 so the small rocket will appear when held by a soldier.

Micro Rockets.zip

This only includes the Small Rockets, if you are looking for the armor I believe that the Final Mod Pack uses something like it as well.


Off topic:
Does anyone know where the Uzi seen in the mod's initial screenshot is from, it looks pretty good.
