Metal cuirass

Metal cuirass

Cuirass was a very simple Light Armor, a piece of metal armor that covered the breast and back, generally worn over a leather coat and with a metal helmet. The armor flared out near the bottom, providing some protection over the groin. The Thrane and Merenae Kingdoms had developed firearms, discouraging heavier armor which would not protect againt projectiles shooted at high speed. [1] The Rokugani version was known as Tetsu-Dou.
