1.Historical Background of the Protective Armor
The armor is originated in primitive society, mainly using rattan, wood, leather and other raw materials manufactured into a simple protective armor. Then gradually, people have reformed the whole piece of leather armor into removable armor pieces. That is, cut the leather armor into different sizes and shapes according to the different parts of the body, and combine two or more layers of leather together. The surface is painted to make a solid, beautiful and durable armor. Holes were then perforated in the leather pieces and the armor was woven with cords. Leather armor is often used in conjunction with shields in chariot battles to provide effective defense against some weapons.
Later, with the change of dynasties and the improvement of defense requirements, the design of the armor and the materials used were continuously improved and optimized, and slowly there were armors with stronger protection capabilities. So when we are watching some historical-themed movies, we can always find various kinds of armor in them.

These armors were able to withstand attacks from swords, spears and lances, providing soldiers with critical defensive capabilities.
Secondly, the armor also possessed the function of deterring the enemy. On the battlefield, soldiers in armor represented authority and power, which was a great psychological pressure on the enemy. Facing an army in armor, even if the enemy's riding and shooting skills are superior, it is difficult to compete with them. Therefore, armor became a kind of invisible killer in ancient wars.
In addition, the manufacture of armor required a lot of resources, especially iron armor. In ancient times, making armor was a difficult task that required a lot of manpower and material resources. Therefore, armies with armor could not only gain an advantage on the battlefield, but also secure their position and have a chance to overthrow the dynasty.
