Metal armor is simply any kind of armor made of metal, from metal plates crudely put together to state of the art craftsmanship.

While power armor is technically also made mostly of metal, it is more advanced in its characteristics and as such, is not counted as "metal armor".[1][2]

Variants

Metal cuirass

Gameplay articles:

A crude suit of armor, consisting of polished metal plates[3] hammered to resemble a breastplate and pauldrons covering the chest, abdomen and shoulders, worn together with a pair of boots reinforced with metal plating. The three spikes mounted on the left shoulder are perhaps the most striking feature of this suit. Usually worn with light brown trousers.

Metal cuirass Mk II
