In General

Most technology levels provide access to two different suits of Armor, one tailored towards Mobility (Tac Vest, Kestrel, Banshee, Corsair, Seraph) and the other tailored towards Survival (Tac Armor, Carapace, Aegis, Titan, Archangel).

Armour overall provides more health to soldiers, allowing XCOM soldiers to withstand additional punishment. Certain armors have less equipment slots as compensation for various advantages. Furthermore the covert operative leather jacket incurs a significant movement speed penalty, intended to represent the weight of the hacking equipment they carry.

Long War Rebalance represents movement speed in tiles, thus a soldier with 10 mobility will be able to cover 10 tiles with 1 AP spent.

Armor is important to increase the HP of all units, even non-tanks. This is because enemies that can deal damage equal to or greater than a soldier's HP will prioritize targeting them; making it difficult for a tank to occupy enemy attention.
