Laminated armour
Laminated armour
Armour has been used throughout recorded history, and manufactured from a variety of materials. In East Asian history laminated armour such as lamellar, and styles similar to the coat of plates, and brigandine were commonly used. Later, around the dynastic Tang, Song, and early Ming Period, cuirasses and plates were also used, with more elaborate versions for officers in war.
