Not sure whether it goes here, but - a clip showing how mobile a knight in armour could be:
I realized I never followed up on this. So. I have been fighting in steel armor for about a year now. I would say, firefighting turnout gear is the easiest to run in, then military combat load, then knight armor. However, all three are cumbersome. The leg armor makes it the most difficult of the 3. Same with arm dexterity.I’ll let you guys know if things work out for my my comparison. I’m about to try to start up with the armor combat league, and do some training with hopes of competing. I’m currently a full time city firefighter and a marine combat vet with 3 combat tours. So once I get buckled down and start training in full Knight armor, which I assume will probably be after months of training in gambeson, I’ll let you know what I think between the three of these. As of right now, firefighting gear is more cumbersome mobility wise that a full military combat load, but the military combat load is more off balance due to the ammo you carry and feels heavier.
