Fluff Text[edit]

As Written, the majority of the fluff text appears to better fit what should be on the main page for Armor in general vice what is being used on the main page for Standard BattleTech Armor. All in Favor of moving Fluff? All Opposed?--Cameron 19:08, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

Also suggest adding in fluff text that fits what is known of this technology. "Composed of Ferrus materiels for effectiveness against Ballistic, Explosive/Missile & Physical/Mele attacks laced with diamond fibres and backed with ceramics to defeat Laser and / or energy based attacks, this type of Armor is used by both the InnerSphere and the Clans and has a Technology Rating of D due to its being developed in the Age of War. First introduced on BattleMechs, it was rapidly fitted on the Combat Vehicles that followed in responce to the vast superiority of the BattleMech over the vehicles of the time (closer to Category:Support Vehicles than Category:Combat Vehicles).--Cameron 19:08, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

What main page for armor? When did that happen? --Scaletail 00:08, 5 December 2009 (UTC)
Category Page. or having a "same name" (my latin sucks) page. Having the Generic data for armor in general on the Standard Armor Page doesn't fit how Ferro-Fibrous & Ferro Aluminium have the fluffed out desctription for the armor.--Cameron 16:08, 7 December 2009 (UTC)
Information really shouldn't go in the category page. If you feel that a page devoted to the general concept of "armor" is in need, I'm all for it. My only suggestion about your above proposed text is this: when I write articles for weapons and equipment, I make clear distinctions between background information and game stats. I would split up what it actually is from the in-game "tech level". --Scaletail 01:38, 9 December 2009 (UTC)
