Improved Ferro-Aluminum Armor
Improved Ferro-Aluminum armor is an armor type used on WarShips, JumpShips, and DropShips . Due to the sheer size of DropShips, WarShips, and JumpShips, standard armor may require too much mass, restricting weapons or cargo carrying capability. The Improved Ferro-Aluminum armor adds more protection per ton, but is both more expensive and bulkier than standard Ferro-Aluminum armor. As such, it cannot be used on anything smaller than a DropShip, but its cost typically restricts its use to WarShips or JumpShips.
Improved Ferro-Aluminum armor served as the basis for Ferro-Carbide armor used on some WarShips.
