Ferro-Fibrous Armor

Ferro-Fibrous armor (FF) is a special type of armor used by vehicles and BattleMechs. Utilizing a weave of ferro-steel, ferro-titanium, and diamond weave fibers which boosts the tensile strength of the plating, it provides more protection per ton than standard armor, but takes up more space on the 'Mech or vehicle.

Ferro-Fibrous Armor (S)

The Sanctuary Worlds never had a technological backslide, so they never lost the skill and technology to make Ferro-Fibrous armor. However, over time they even improved upon it, bettering its protection while making it considerably less bulky. The end result is this, Sanctuary Ferro-Fibrous armor, essentially the same as Inner Sphere Ferro-Fibrous armor but significantly less bulky.

Light Ferro-Fibrous Armor

Light Ferro-Fibrous armor (FF) is an attempt by the Inner Sphere to mimic SLDF Ferro-Fibrous armor. Utilizing a weave of ferro-steel, ferro-titanium, and diamond weave fibers which boosts the tensile strength of the plating, it provides more protection per ton than standard armor, but takes up more space on the 'Mech or vehicle.

Heavy Ferro-Fibrous Armor

Heavy Ferro-Fibrous armor was developed by Durallex for the Lyran Alliance based on the Inner Sphere's attempts at Light Ferro-Fibrous. Utilizing a weave of ferro-steel, ferro-titanium, and diamond weave fibers which boosts the tensile strength of the plating, it provides more protection per ton than standard armor, but takes up more space on the 'Mech or vehicle.

Ultra Ferro-Fibrous Armor

Ultra Ferro-Fibrous armor was developed by House Davion after looking at captured Clan Ferro-Fibrous armor examples. The Davion engineers fairly quickly discovered that working CASE technology into Inner Sphere Heavy Ferro-Fibrous armor was possible, for a small reduction in total protection offered. It remains just as bulky as standard Heavy Ferro-Fibrous however, despite the slightly reduced protection. Ultra Ferro incorporates CASE technology in all components of the equipped 'mech.

Ferro-Lamellor Armor (C)

Created by the scientist caste of Clan Snow Raven, Ferro-Lamellor armor is based on the Ferro-Carbide armor used in the Raven's WarShips. Scaled down for use on 'Mechs, AeroSpace Fighters, and tanks, the experimental Ferro-Lamellor armor offers improved protection, beyond even that of the Ferro-Fibrous armor. Clan Armor incorporates CASE technology.

Ferro-Vanadium Armor (S)

The race between armor and weapons has long been one run by all who would wage war. However, the Sanctuary hoped with this to tip the scales in favor of armor for once. Ferro-Vanadium armor is the Sanctuary's final word in protective gear. Composed of a vanadium weave overlaid with ferro-steel and ferro-titanium mesh, Ferro-Vanadium is extremely resilient to incoming ballistic and missile damage. Additionally, the Sanctuary's anti-explosion equipment, the SHIELD system, is built into Ferro-Vanadium for maximum protection. However, Ferro-Vanadium is moderately bulky, taking some amount of space on the equipped unit.

Notes:

  • Primitive armor has no redeeming features and should be removed from all your 'Mechs ASAP.

Industrial Armor

Developed in the mid-2400s by the Terran Hegemony, industrial armor closely resembles the primitive armors that predated it. However, industrial armor is not intended for military applications, instead it is meant for nominal protection of IndustrialMechs as they go about their standard duties. There is one upside to industrial armor however: because it is intended for rough-and-tumble situations it offers a slight amount of increased protection against heavy blows, such as those generated by ballistic weaponry. The benefit is small, but when pressed into combat, every advantage is worth taking.

Hardened Armor

Hardened Armor is a thicker armor type that uses multiple overlapping plates to provide additional protection against enemy fire. Though capable of diverting more damage than standard armor, the increased number of armor plates and their lack of flexibility makes any unit employing it more difficult to pilot, and can affect the speed as well. In fact, Hardened Armor is so heavy that it cannot be mounted on hovercraft, VTOLs, or WiGE vehicles. Reduces incoming Critical Hits.

Hardened Armor (C)

Hardened Armor is a thicker armor type that uses multiple overlapping plates to provide additional protection against enemy fire. Though capable of diverting more damage than standard armor, the increased number of armor plates and their lack of flexibility makes any unit employing it more difficult to pilot, and can affect the speed as well. Clan-spec Hardened Armor resembles its Inner Sphere counterpart, though in keeping with Clan doctrine weighs less and reduces speed less. However, it also protects less well than IS Hardened Armor (though not by much). To compensate for the lack of protection, Clan Hardened also incorporates CASE II functionality. Hardened Armor (C) is Community Content gear.

Heavy Plating Armor

A Periphery invention, or really re-discovery, heavy plating armor is just that: heavier plating from an older era of armor design. While unusually bulky and heavy, heavy plating does provide enhanced armor protection for the weight. Armor tonnage gets increased by 25% while taking up 8 slots and being 25% heavier.

Light Plating Armor

A Periphery invention, or really re-discovery, light plating armor is just that: lighter plating from an older era of armor design. Designed to be light if a little bulky, light plating costs very little to produce and to install but also provides less protection per ton than standard military-grade armoring. Used as a sort of Ferro-Fibrous replacement for militaries on a severe budget, light plating makes a fine if unimpressive budget option. Armor tonnage gets reduced by 1/12 while taking up 8 slots and being 25% less effective.

Reflective Coating

Laser Reflective Armor dissipates energy weapon attacks more efficiently than other armor types, reducing the amount of damage taken by the 'Mech mounting it. Despite the name, Laser Reflective Armor is effective against all energy weapons, not just lasers. PPCs, Flamers, Plasma Rifles and Plasma Cannons are all less effective against it. Ballistic and missile weapons do more damage however. Reserves 10 slots.
