There's a no addon or compound that directly creates armor. That's all manual labor, but there are some compounds that might help you with some technical details of that:

CookieCutter, Deform by uv,

Probably also LK_Fabric and mbFeatherTools can be helpful with some parts (they can be used for different things other than fabric/feathers).

You could also consider using zBrush for that as it has many tools for repetetive things and there are a lot of tutorials for it.

A lot depends on whether it's going to be animated or not.

Is applied to the animation, if there is a hinge structure, may also consider interspersed collisions, with momentum may be able to solve I think, thanks @rray, I benefit from your site
