Because of the changes in war tactics the heavy cavalry was equipped with firearms instead of lances from the 17th century on. The cavalryman could thus shoot on the enemy lines after which he approached the enemy with his sword.
This suit of armour is made after an early 17th century German original. Suit of armoures like this were used by the heavy cavalry during i.a. the 30 years War, the British Civil War and the 80 Years War.
This suit of armour weighs just 19,5 kg and is perfectly wearable. The armour is made of cold rolled plate steel. It is available with a steel thickness of 1,3 or 1,5 mm and with an unpolished, polished or bronzed finish.
