When a character hits something else, its "To-Hit" value is weighed against the targets DV to determine if the attack successfully hits the defender. The attacking character rolls 1d20 + its To-Hit modifier against the defender's DV. If the attacking character's number is greater than the DV of the defender, the attack successfully hits. If the attacker rolls a 20, there is a guaranteed chance to hit. However, an attack does not inflict damage until it penetrates the target. (See AV for more details).
When viewing a piece of Armor, the second number is that article's modifier on your DV.
