Why is there no armor compensation skill

That gives a 2% cap reduction for armor repairers the same way shield comp reduced cap use on shield boosters?
Just curious.

I would guess it is because Armor ships start out with more base cap, than shield ships.
An active shield tank gets into its cap much sooner than an armor ship.
And, Armor ships have a little buffer of shield before you hit their main tank.

An active armor tank and active shield tank aren't intended to work the same way. The repair system skill reduces cycle time on the armor repair module so cap requirement actually increases!

Armor repair is more energy efficient than shield repair.
