Ferro-Lamellor Armor

(Redirected from Ferro-Lamellor)

DescriptionEdit

Created by the Scientist caste of Clan Snow Raven in 3070,[1] 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 family.

Though it only offers 88% coverage compared to standard armor[2] , Ferro-Lamellor has a unique property: It reduces the damage of weapon strikes by 20%.[3] In addition, the armor will reinforce the structure of the unit mounting it, making it impervious to the armor piercing effects of Armor-Piercing autocannon ammunition, Tandem-Charge Warheads, and BattleMech Tasers.[4]

Game RulesEdit

The armor reduces 1 point of damage for every 5 points of damage to a minimum of 0 points per hit. Damage reduced to 0 will not affect the pilot or deliver a penetrating or floating critical hit. However weapons can affect the motive systems of some vehicles. In addition Ferro-Lamellor negates the effects of armor-piercing ammunition. For construction for every one ton allocated 14 points of armor are given, 7 for a half ton.
