5" x 7.5" x 17" Suit of Armour 5" x 7.5" x 17" Suit of Armour A suit of armor is a historical type of personal body armor made from iron or steel plates, culminating in the iconic suit of armour entirely encasing the wearer. The full plate armor developed in Europe during the Late Middle Ages. In Europe, plate armor reached its peak in the late 15th and early 16th centuries. The full suit of armor is thus a feature of the very end of the Middle Ages and of the Renaissance period. The armor was strong enough to protect knights and was light enough to allow quick movement at the same time. This armor model would be an adequate piece of work to add anywhere in a home. It is a simple full suit of armor that resembles the armor used during the medieval times. The model is 17 inches tall and the base is 6 inches both ways. This piece ready for display right out of the box.
