    Default Re: Got a Real-World Weapon, Armour or Tactics Question? Mk. XXVIII

    I wonder how long textile armour lasted in a tropical environment, I'd imagine it would slowly rot off the wearer. I'm guessing it's service life wasn't measured in years?

    I'm pretty sure the Egyptians in antiquity wore armour made of cotton, rather than opting for bronze.
