Since toaw doesn't have simple attack and defense strengths, it also takes into account the percent of the defenders who are armored. If you've got infantry against tanks, you're going to see a pretty small value for the AR.
History has shown that tanks are notoriously poor at holding ground against grunts without said tanks having some kind of infantry support. Do defenders that are purely armored receive a benefit against infantry? Seems it should be the other way around.
Ralph should have said "attackers with low AT values against pure armored defenders".
If all the defender's equipment is armored, only the attacker's AT values will be included in the AR. If all the defender's equipment is unarmored, only the attacker's AP values will be included in the AR. If half the defense strength is from armored equipment and half from unarmored, then half the attacker's AP and half the attacker's AT will be included in the AR.
So, if the defenders are all tanks, only the AT values of the attackers will be considered. For some infantry, that will be quite low. But that will be the case in combat resolution as well.
Of course, some infantry have large AT values - available when the designer considers that to be appropriate.
