This topic was discussed back in 2014, about Tinker's Construct armor piercing effects certain weapons have. Quantum armor is still utterly useless when Tinker's is installed. I would really like it if Quantum had the ability to counter the armor piercing effects of weapons and maybe use more energy? Although, it seems a little cheap to use more energy considering the weapons that have armor piercing are super easy to get. I have always disliked the idea of armor piercing especially since some armors can be absolutely ridiculous to make, this is a prime example.
