A statistician was consulted to determine the optimal way to place shielding armor on aircraft in WWII.
The weight of shiedling slows the aircraft, reduces the weight it can carry (bombs, ammunition, crew), reduces the range it can fly, and reduces it's maneuverability. In essence, it becomes a flying target for other aircraft and antiaircr e story. I only heard that it was true. If anyone knows a good source, please let us know!

Would this answer fit the puzzle you had in mind?
If so, chalk up one for Google with an assist for coquette.

Our puzzle involves guys & gals winning and losing in chess
as well as the use of a hand held calculator (very important).
Also, this one's probably too difficult to solve in your head.
