Introduced in 2570 by the Terran Hegemony, Ferro-Carbide armor is a more advanced version of the Ferro-Aluminum armor used by aerospace fighters and the Improved Ferro-Aluminum armor used on some WarShips. Like the Ferro-Aluminum series armors that came before it, Ferro-Carbide armor offers more protection per ton, but is roughly twenty-five times as expensive as standard armor. (Ferro-Aluminum armor is approximately five times as expensive as standard WarShip armor.) Unfortunately, its weight and bulk prohibit its use on anything smaller than a WarShip.
Lamellor Ferro-Carbide Armor
Lamellor Ferro-Carbide Armor is a more advanced version of Ferro-Carbide armor, introduced in 2615 also by the Terran Hegemony. It offers the best protection per ton of WarShip armor, but is hugely expensive, costing about 100 times as much as standard WarShip armor.
