Is this the best armor to use on a Ship and can you fit this armor on any ship?
List of ArmorsEdit
Forsaken Armor  Forsaken Plate Armor  Draconian Armor 


InformationEdit
Armor is a plating applied to Hulls to increase their resilience and survivability, in exchange for increased weight. Armor equipped on a ship adds points to the hull's base health. In addition, as of Sept. 10, 2014, KIX upgraded turrets so now armor can be added to them as well: "Reinforcement Armor" that is available for research in your Naval Lab for use on turrets only.
Forsaken ArmorsEdit
 There are currently 4 catagories of Forsaken Armor. Iron, Steel, Titanium & Depleted Uranium.
 Forsaken Armor is researched in the Naval Lab. Researching Forsaken Armor has the additional benefit of unlocking the ability to build higher level turrets in your base. Depleted Uranium 4 is a common goal for players to attain so they can build level 4 turrets.
 A tip: DU4 is the only armor "worth researching". DU2 and DU3 are not worth the time in researching prior to DU4 but is a great way to get additional XP later on in the game.
 Titanium armor is useful in the early game; then you will graduate to DU4 and eventually most of your ships will employ Draconian Armor by the late midgame (say you are now a level 42 or higher) .

Forsaken Plate ArmorsEdit
 New Forsaken Armor Plates that are built to withstand HighSalvo rapid fire Weapons, by reducing the damage they deal by a flat amount.
 The effect will be after Defense Bonus is considered, and there will be a minimum amount of damage so that ships will not be immune to a certain type of weapon damage.
Armor Points  Weight (Tons)  Defense Bonus  

Ballistic Plate I  750  150  Ballistic Damage 2 
Ballistic Plate II  1,250  250  Ballistic Damage 4 
Ballistic Plate III  1,750  350  Ballistic Damage 6 
Penetrative Plate I  750  150  Penetrative Damage 6 
Penetrative Plate II  1,250  250  Penetrative Damage 10 
Penetrative Plate III  1,750  350  Penetrative Damage 14 
Explosive Plate I  750  150  Explosive Damage 8 
Explosive Plate II  1,250  250  Explosive Damage 16 
Explosive Plate III  1,750  350  Explosive Damage 22 
Compound Plate I  1,255  251  Ballistic Damage 2 Penetrative Damage 4 Explosive Damage 4 
Compound Plate II  1,770  354  Ballistic Damage 2 Penetrative Damage 4 Explosive Damage 6 
Compound Plate III  2,285  457  Ballistic Damage 4 Penetrative Damage 6 Explosive Damage 8 
Additional Info:Edit
This plate armor is very effective against high salvo weapons like Rockets, D33X, D71Q, Sentinel Missiles 5, etc.
For Example:
Let's assume our ship has Reactive Armor 3 [RA3] (66% Missiles Defense), and three Penetrative Plate 2 (Penetrative Damage 10).
Now, Let's take Assault Missiles D53R, it has 150 Damage, 37 Explosive Damage and it has 2 Salvo.
So Per Salvo, damage from Assault Missiles D55R is 75 Missile Damage and 18.5 Explosive Damage.
RA3 will reduce Missile Damage to 25.5 (34% of 75). Then three Penetrative Plate 2 armor bonus will further reduce 25.5 30 to 4.5.
So against said ship, only 37 Explosive Damage is counted and a certain minimum Missiles Damage will damage the ship.
Draconian ArmorsEdit
 There are currently 4 catagories of Draconian Armor. D1 Series, D2 Series, D3 Series & D4 Series.
 D5E is new and first available in the Aug. 27, 2014 Weekly Mission; it also gives a 10% Evade bonus
 Draconian armors provide almost exactly 4.5 Armor Points / Ton (plus or minus 3 armor point) but they all come with special attributes which can range from bonus resistance against a given damage type, increased map speed, increased combat speed, increased evade, more effecive submarine cloak amongst others.
 They can be obtained by;
 Getting Blueprints pieces from Draconian Cargo Fleets.
 Weekly Forsaken Missions.
 Monthly Event Raids.

Armor WeightEdit
 For Forsaken Armors, each category of armor provides more points for less weight per point. For example, Depleted Uranium (DU) provide 2,156 points with a weight of 479 tons compared to Titanium's 1,118 points for 319 tons.
 Depleted Uranium is almost double the points and only about 100 tons more. It is desirable to have armor that is weight efficient because of tonnage weights imposed on the ship by its hull and on the fleet by the size of the dock.
 Depleted Uranium and Draconian Armors provide aproximately 4.5 armor points per ton of the armor.
Effect on Repair TimesEdit
 The repair time of a damaged or destroyed ship is based on its amount of armor points.
 That is 1 second per armor point, except in the case of submarines in which the time is 4 seconds per amor point. However, this 4 secs. rule varies somewhat on the ship's hull type.
 Repair time can be reduced by 10% by using a "Master Fixer" captain in the Great Hall.
