The Short Bow is a standard weapon of an assassin. They use the weapon to get ranged kills and be stealthy about it. One can level up their Sneak skill to the point where they can shoot straight through armor.
Basically, armor has no effect. It is preferred among members of the Dark Brotherhood because they have to carry out missions that require not to be seen in order to get a big bonus.
