comment How does armor work?
You're correct. Apparently, the wiki article has changed since my post, and now contains a clear formula to calculate direct damage. I'll update my answer.

comment What is the best mission type to bring a rookie on?
^^ This. Because it guarantees ONLY thin men, which have only 4 life points, making for a one-shot kill (if you can hit them). Cover your retreat prudently, because they will drop from the sky after bomb disposal.

comment Are there any mods that unlock higher level equipment or skill trees?
Don't know about mods for the campaign, but there is some pretty decent DLC available for The Last Stand and multiplayer game modes.

comment Does the 'Sight' attachment improve the car weapons or the cars' stats?
I think it only adds the laser sight and nothing more. At least that's what I experienced. Kind of a useless upgrade, to be honest.

comment Is better to use S.H.I.V or rookies in missions?
I suppose it also depends on at what point in the game you acquire the SHIV (+ upgrades). Once you have enough plasma rifles for your squad, there's not that much benefit in investing in a SHIV (usually, around that time you would have also upgraded your soldiers' armor).

comment Is better to use S.H.I.V or rookies in missions?
I don't know why, so it might be just me, but each time I tried out a SHIV on a mission, it was easily destroyed. Doesn't have that much hit points, and you automatically are less cautious because no XP is lost on a soldier. For me, it was always more rewarding to use a soldier (rookie or not). They are just more flexible, AND harder to hit.
