Description:
Refinements in armor technologies led to the advent of the standard-grade military armor still used today. As tough as industrial armor, yet much more effective, this multi-layered armor is the most widely used by battlefield units of virtually every kind, including aerospace fighters and DropShips. Armor of this type is available from a broad number of manufacturers, with brand names such as ArcShield, Durallex, ProtecTech, Starshield, StarSlab and Valiant produced under licenses by factories across the Inner Sphere and Periphery.

Standard armor has also made its way back into the industrial sector with so-called heavy industrial armor. Functionally identical to standard battlefield armor—and thus equally expensive—this armor type is rarely seen, but is used for IndustrialMechs employed in harsher environments.

Game Rules:
Armor is considered structural and cannot be “deactivated” during combat through engine shutdown or pilot/crew injury.

Construction Rules:
May be mounted on any available unit type in accordance with the unit’s standard construction rules.
