Light Ferro-Fibrous Armor

(Redirected from Light Ferro-Fibrous)


Light ferro-fibrous armor was developed by the Inner Sphere for use on BattleMechs and combat vehicles. It was first put into production in 3067. In their attempt to mimic Clan ferro-fibrous armor, Free Worlds League scientists were able to reduce the amount of space that light ferro-fibrous takes up to match that of the Clans, but the cost was reduced protection.[1]

Heavy Ferro-Fibrous armor was developed based upon the Light Ferro-Fibrous armor compound by Durallex for the Lyran Alliance Armed Forces in 3069. Durallex was inspired by Kallon Industries' idea to modify the amount of diamond in the armor, but went in the other direction. The result was a bulkier armor that was stronger.[1]
