i've heard people say they have 2+ armor saves but the listed equipment they have gives a 3+ armor save. Which is true?

Both,actually. They have a 3+ save normally, but in combat they have a 2+ against enemies to their front because of the hand weapon+shield rules.

Only against enemies to your front. If they were to be charged in the flank, for example, they would only have a 3+ save against those enemies.

Actually,that rule makes a lot of sense for ironbreakers in particular....represents their tunnel-fighting experience quite well.

hand wep + shield gives +1 armor save?
Yes, if you have the little rule book from BFSP then it's page 56 "Fighting with a hand weapon and shield".

This rule does make Ironbreakers rather tough to be in combat unless you have high strength for the armour save modifiers. In general, most the time Ironbreakers will be fine against anyone of S5 or below (S5 reducing it to a 4+ save). But still makes them rather tough in general.
