Dead World: Isolation
[Armor] Heavy Armor
Heavy armor provides superior protection and damage reduction at the cost of mobility and dexterity.
Armor has been used throughout recorded history. It has been made from a variety of materials; from rudimentary leather protection, personal armor evolved to Mail and full plated suits of armor. For much of military history the manufacture of metal armor in Europe has dominated the technology and employment of armor. Armor drove the development of many important technologies of the Ancient World, including wood lamination, mining, metal refining, vehicle manufacture, leather processing, and later decorative metal working. Its production was influential in the industrial revolution, and influenced commercial development of metallurgy and engineering. Armor was the single most influential factor in the development of firearms that revolutionized warfare.
