Thrust is quite simple, just divide thrust by the mass ratio (spaceship mass divided by the average mass for a spaceship of its SM). Armor is more complicated, but here is a table for simplicity (it ranges from 10 components to 29 components):

Components dDR Multiplier
10 1.6
11 1.5
12 1.4
13 1.3
14 1.3
15 1.2
16 1.2
17 1.1
18 1.1
19 1.0
20 1.0
21 1.0
22 0.9
23 0.9
24 0.9
25 0.9
26 0.8
27 0.8
28 0.8
29 0.8
