MOA armor rules question

Recommended Posts

I don't understand the difference between "metal armor" and "plate metal armor", as described below. I understand that the gauges are referring to steel. My question is how can I tell what will fail at the armor gates before I get there.

 

My back & breast is probably 16 gauge, my helmet is at lest 16 gauge, and I know my greaves and sport pauldrons are 18 gauge stainless. I also have a suit of lorica that is composed of 18 gauge steel.

 

 

 

5.2.2 - The minimum thickness of metal armor is 16 gauge.

 

5.2.3 - The minimum thickness wire for chain mail is 16-gauge.

 

5.2.4 - The minimum thickness of plate metal armor and riveted/welded chainmail is 18 gauge.

Don't ask us dude, we're just the head armor checkers for Rag. We have as little idea as you do, so we're just going to fail everything.
