The Heavy Armor Kit is a passive module.
This module grants a stackable % bonus to a robot's durability. Due to this effect, many players often make use of its 7% durability increase (at base level) on fragile glass cannon robots such as the Spectre, Ares and Ao Jun to increase their health so they can make use of their high firepower for longer. However, sometimes commanders also mount them on less fragile tanks like Invader and Lancelot, to further enhance their already-high health pools. This way, you get one of the strongest tanks in the game able to survive heavy pummeling from all sides and re-emerging without a scratch.
This module can be paired with certain Pilots for extremely high resistance. As such, you should always mount these modules on your best candidates to overwhelm the heavy downsides (see below).
This module is the 'upgraded' version of the Armor Kit as it performs the same function, but with higher stats. However, it makes sense as it costs 5000 gold. It does give a higher health boost than a fully upgraded Armor Kit at base level, but many commanders prefer to invest in more hangar decks or hangar slots before they willingly buy a Heavy Armor Kit. Not only that, but its upgrade costs are ridiculously high too. 40 million silver is the equivalent of 23.529 Doc robots... per level. That adds up to a total of 94.11 Doc robots simply to upgrade this module to its highest level.
However, it isn't all doom and gloom. Heavy Armor Kit may be expensive to upgrade, but when you go through your silver and finally upgrade it to max level, you get a health buff of 12%. That means three of these modules, maxed out, on a max level Invader equals 498,500 durability... and throwing in a maxed out pilot with as much skills as you can get for defense you can essentially reach around 767,700 durability. Needless to say, Heavy Armor Kits are definitely worth investing in if you have a good candidate with a good pilot.
Heavy Armor Kit is a good choice to invest in if you've got plenty of spare gold lying around and you think your Armor Kits aren't doing a very thorough job of increasing your robot durability. If you think three Heavy Armor Kits aren't enough, you could either spend 282.33 Docs' worth of silver or invest in pilots. Either way, Heavy Armor Kit provides thorough protection for your robot.
