What does a magnetic field have to do with armor strength?

Uh, yeah, I don't think a weak magnetic field is gonna do much against a laser, or a bolt of lightning, or a high-velocity rail gun, or an explosion, or microwave radiation, or acid, or weaponized adhesive foam, or high-speed wind storms capable of tearing fortified structures to pieces, or earthquakes, or meteors.

a magnetic feild does not have a net charge.  Magnetic charge is caused by the pathway of the field, causing a positive side where it originates and a negative side where it returns.  It is impossible to have one that is only positive or negative.

As to diflection, it would only work if the projectile has a magnetic field traveling in the same direction.
