eng consoles dont stack 100%, there is a diminishing ratio, dunno how much
This only applies to the armor consoles. The way it work, effective HP is approximately linear.

Say you have 10,000 hp, and have two 10% armor consoles. If you equip one, you can take the equivalent of 11,000 damage. If you equip two, you can take the equivalent of 12,000 damage - which is only a 16% reduction, not 20%. You'd get the same result with one 20% console.

It's a bit wonkier than that if you get down to the finer details, and if there is a cap where no amount of stacking helps anymore. There's a spreadsheet floating around if you want to get into the finer details, but linear effective HP is a good way to get a rough idea.

All other consoles are linear from base.
