Protective armor in the form of sheet iron fittings (metal plates) tailored to the shape of the body and strapped in position. This type of armor was current in the 15th-16th century AD Europe. The knights of the European Middle Ages wore this armor composed of large steel or iron plates that were linked by loosely closed rivets and by internal leathers to allow the wearer maximum freedom of movement.
