3. Delete the fields from image line from the code if you do not have a corresponding picture.

4. Replace the '???' from the other lines with the correct data. If the detail isn't known, delete the ??? and leave the field blank.

5. Fill in the four sections (Description, Weapons and Equipment, Variants, References) to the best of your capability.

6. Do not include a reference or citation in the production year field. Instead, place the reference or citation for the production year field in the year reference field. Only populate the Introduced field if the introduction date differs from the production date.

7. Select the appropriate categories for the article. Every battle armor article should include the Category: Battle Armor. The other categories are optional and should be deleted if they are not appropriate.

8. Click on the Show preview button and review your article for mistakes.

9. Press the Save page button.

10. Bask in the pride of your article, with our thanks.
