Different kinds of armor play very important roles in the tank battles of the Empires universe. Select the appropriate type of armor and you will come out victorious.

Armor

Plain armor - Plain armor offers mild protection from damage.

Research Required: None

  • Cost: 10
  • Health: 30
  • Slots: 1
  • Weight: 15

Composite armor - Composite armor consists of layers of steel, ceramic, and plastic honeycomb, and it's designed to offer protection from almost all types of projectiles equally well.

Research Required: Mechanical Engineering > Advanced Machining > Composite Armor

  • Cost: 38
  • Health: 80
  • Slots: 1
  • Weight: 10

Reactive armor - Electrically charged armor is internally aligned with charged capacitors. When an incoming projectile makes contact, the capacitor discharges its energy into the projectile, disrupting it or possibly even vaporizing it.

Research Required: Electrical Engineering > Reactive Armor

  • Cost: 34
  • Health: 65
  • Slots: 1
  • Weight: 20

Reflective armor - Reflective armor is able to deflect almost all of a projectile's kinetic energy away from the vehicle so long as the projectile does not hit perfectly perpendicular to the armor plating.

Research Required: Physics > Projectile Physics > Reflective Armor

  • Cost: 23
  • Health: 60
  • Slots: 1
  • Weight: 15

Regenerative armor - Regenerative armor is engineered with living tissue designed to grow calcium carbonate as the protective medium. As it is newly formed, it is malleable enough to find its way into damaged areas where it solidifies and reinforces/replaces material that had been damaged/destroyed.

Research Required: Biology > Regenerative Armor

  • Cost: 23
  • Health: 75
  • Slots: 1
  • Weight: 15

Absorbant armor - Absorbant armor is engineered with strong materials able to undergo excessive plastic deformation. This allows the armor to reduce damage received as a projectile's speed increases.

Research Required: Chemistry > Absorbant Materials > Absorbant Armor

  • Cost: 15
  • Health: 50
  • Slots: 1
  • Weight: 15
