Ideal armor thickness for a somewhat independent ship

The cannon has a continues rate of fire of 32RPM or a round every 1.87s.
That being a rail assisted cannon.

The ship is indeed very durable.
And sure thing, I'll have to try how it deals with HESH and HEAT - Though having 2 airgaps I'd expect that it does pretty well

running rail chargers and recoil between the clips/loaders in a 4 clip setup is still highly inefficient because you end up expending a lot of blocks on connectors.  for heavy railguns like this, it's the charge rate that tends to be the bottleneck so it is much more efficient to have a minimal gauge snake with a compact core of loaders and have most of the rest of the gun be chargers with enough recoil compensation to not knock the ship around.
-Do not bring forth an argument as fact that can be disproven with a 10 minute Google search.
