Ok, I'm just looking for some clarification here, but if you aren't going to be doing brigades, you can have whatever mix of armor classes/pieces you want (excepting the minimums specified in the CRLs), right?

Yup!  I mean, it might look a little funny if you have all the heavy armor plates up top, and just knees on the bottom :P but in most cases armor class isn't too big of an issue.

For strapping on plates, if my flight suit is a different color from my vest (OD green and black respectively), do the straps have to color match the parts of the suit they are strapped over? I didn't see this mentioned anywhere.

No. If you look at most kits, you'll see that the vest straps are the same color as the vest. Just make sure to tails are trimmed up

So black straps over a green suit won't get me dinged?

From the CRLs:
Armor strapping:
External strapping must be of an in universe material, examples include but are not limited to tactical web belting and leather. Elastic strapping is generally unacceptable for external use (refer to the following exceptions). The preferred method for the use of elastic strapping is to conceal it within the flightsuit.
Elastic may be used for boot armor strapping, but must be of the high quality elastic and same color as the boot.
External elastic strapping may be used in the following manners:
On the knee’s, elbows and Mando “thongs” only and dyed or painted to match the flightsuit as best as possible
If fully hidden from view by armor accessories such as kama’s, ammo pouches, capes, holsters etc. It would be recommended to use a higher quality elastic rather than the inexpensive “sew in” type, in the event the coverage moves and it’s exposed. It would also be best that it match the flightsuit in color or be colors that compliment the overall color palate of the costume.

I have green straps over a tan suit for my vest. As long as your straps aren't elastic, they'll be fine

Lets stay on topic here guys/gals.  This is about Armor Classes: light/medium/heavy, not strapping.

What are the restrictions on weapons for someone that would be doing a medium armor set?
We're a few extra pieces to our medium armor sets but missing a few from the heavy.
We don't want to do the biceps pieces or the bottom back plate.
However we will be adding knees, hands, and boots.

Weapons do not correlate with armor so you can have whatever (crl approved) weapon you want no matter what type of armor you're wearing. Brigades are the only thing that restrict weapons, but you shouldn't worry about them and should instead focus on getting OM first.

My fiancee is looking to do an LPG and wanted to make sure that once he made his armor and would submit with his weapon preference that they wouldn't tell him that he's not allowed to have that kind of weapon due to his armor class rating.
I think that answers my question though, so thank you

For classes or brigades that approve of more than one armor class then can your armor be "somewhere in between" two classes?

short answer, yes.

This is still considered "light"even though I have shins, a kama, hard cod, and boot plates



Once I added thigh plates however, the armor was bumped up to "medium" as I had the minimum plate coverage for medium.
