Chain Mail Armor is a Technology in Age of Empires II that can be researched at the Blacksmith. Once researched, this Technology increases Infantry armor and pierce armor by +1.


Armor made of linked metal chains was an improvement over a cascade of metal scales. It had greater intergrity and held up better after taking some damage. Whereas a row of scales might come loose after a blow, chain mail armor stayed largely intact. Because the linked chains were smaller than the scales they replaced, chain mail armor was more flexible and comfortable to wear. While an improvement, chain mail armor was also more expensive and time-consuming to manufacture.
