Okay for the sake of realism (I know its a game) but:
Armor is on the outside of the hull, so It would not be able to be repaired without either a spacedock facitilty, or some peep hanging on the outside on the hull. And I don;t care what anyone says, the red shirts or your average knuckle dragger are not that dumb to be hanging on the ship's exterior during a battle.
