Ferro-Aluminum Armor

(Redirected from Ferro-aluminum)


Ferro-Aluminum (FA) is an advanced type of armor developed by the Terran Hegemony[1] and used primarily by aerospace fighters, as well as DropShips, JumpShips, WarShips, and in one unusual instance, a ground vehicle. Similar in principle to ferro-fibrous armor,[1] Ferro-Aluminum provides more protection per ton than standard armor plate in exchange for increased bulk, differing in the use of foamed aluminum which also provides benefits in bleeding off waste heat from planetary reentry.
