Lorica hamata

mail armor


Rating: 2/1
Defense: -2
Cost: 3


Although labor-intensive to manufacture, it is thought that, with good maintenance, they could be continually used for several decades. Constant friction keeps the rings of the lorica hamata free of rust, unlike the segmentata which needs constant maintenance to prevent corrosion.

Hamata remains in constant use by the legionaries and it is the preferred armour of the centurions, who favor its greater coverage and lower maintenance.
