According to Mandalore The Uniter. Medium armour is Jango at a minimum. and a mazimum of jango with bicep plates, hand plates and collar armour. Heavy is when you take the medium armour max, and add wrap around thighs (full thigh coverage) Wrap around shins (full lower leg coverage) wrap around bicep and gauntlets (full arm coverage) and collar plates.

So if you have to be medium but want to look well armoured, you can add biceps, collar and hand plates and still be classified as medium.

This literally just answered my question thanks!!!!!!!

I was actually wronghere, what i said would still count as medium would actually be classified as heavy, but if you lose the collar or bicep plates it reverts back to medium.

Question, So right now I have light armor and I'm thinking about going Medium. Do I need a back plate for medium or is a cape (in place of the backplate) ok?

I am working on a special ops recon build i.e. Light armor. Would a knee/shin guards pass muster?

Yep, having Knee and shins doesn't cross into medium armour, You need Jango level armour to be medium, loose any of those bits without breaking the CRL is light

Is there a Weight Limit on the Armor Classes? I met one of the Arizona Clan members this weekend, in his Heavy armor. And he said his kit weighed about 60 pounds.

Physical weight..... no, as Mercs make armour from various materials, its more what you can bare and are comfortable with.
as long as its a material allowed in the CRL's I can't see a problem

no armor weight limit at all.   Dresdons armor weighs like 140lbs.

Armor Requirements
Medium
Added arm pieces are required. Types of armor you can use- Pick 1 for both arms or 2 on 1 arm.   
Elbow armor
Bicep armor
Segmented gauntlet that covers the hand
Larger shoulder bells
Hand armor is  required and exempt from the "pick 1", except if you go for the extended segmented gauntlet above
* CAN do more if you so chose, but if you're going for the asymmetrical look, make sure to keep it off balance, and don't stray into Heavy Assault territory :-p

Suggested armor pieces:
Neck armor
Decap collar
Heel plate
Toe plate (not to be confused with boot plate)
Flank armor

I realize this has been beat to death, but I've got a question related to the above armor requirements for the Weapons Master Brigade. I was wanting to take medium armor and add neck armor, bicep plates (non-wrap around), and crushgaunts, as well as full boot armor. If I understand the descriptions correctly, because the bicep, thigh, and shin plates do not wrap around the arms, this still is considered medium, correct?

Vor'e!
