Half Armor

At the beginning of the 17th century guns became so effective and tactic used changed dramatically. As a result, mobility had become more important. This resulted in less armor being used. The armor that was still in usage consisted only of armor protecting the torso, back and arms and it was known as half armor. In many cases even the arms were unprotected and soldiers only worn cuirasses.
