Light Ferro-Fibrous Armor


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]

In game terms, light ferro-fibrous takes up seven critical slots in a BattleMech or one slot in a combat vehicle. The amount of armor points is increased by six percent when compared to standard armor.[2]
