Medieval Armour Suit
This complete Medieval Armour Suit made from mild steel would weigh around 25–30 kg. The wearer remained highly agile and could jump, run and otherwise move freely as the weight of the armour was spread evenly throughout the body. The armour was articulated and covered a man’s entire body completely from neck to toe. In the 15th and 16th centuries, plate-armored soldiers were the nucleus of every army.
By about 1420, complete suits of plate armour had been developed in Europe. A full suit of plate armour would have consisted of a helmet, a gorget, spaulders, pauldrons with gardbraces or rondels to cover the armpits which were mostly used in Gothic Armour, vambraces, gauntlets, a cuirass (breastplate and backplate) with tassets, a mail skirt, cuisses, poleyns, greaves, and sabatons. Some pieces suited for different purposes, so that the suit could be configured for a range of different uses, for example fighting on foot or on horse.
