AV (aka: Armor value) is determined by various factors like Armor, Mutations, etc. It determines how well you can resist single or multiple penetrations on a hit.

When a character hits something else, the PV of its weapon is weighed against the targets AV to determine how many times the attack penetrates. The attacking character rolls 1d21-2 + its PV Vs the defender's AV 3 times. If the attacking character beats the AV even once, the attack penetrates the defender's armor. If the attacking character beats the defender's AV all 3 times, they get to make a new set of checks with a -2 penalty. This repeats until a set of penetrations has at least 1 failure. Each set of penetrations with at least 1 success counts as a penetration and lets you roll the damage die once, so if you penetrate 4 times with a 1d3 damage weapon, you will do 4d3 damage.

When viewing a piece of clothing or armor, AV is the first number. The second number determines the modifier to your DV, or dodge value.
