A set of Steel plate armor (170 ) is cheaper than a full set of flak armor (190 + 110 + 3 ). It has much lower sharp protection than a flak vest, but covers the arms and legs. It doesn't last as long as flak, having only 290 hp compared to flak's 600 hp. Its movement penalty is heavier at -0.8c/s compared to -0.36/s for the whole flak set.
A set of Plasteel plate armor is slightly cheaper than a set of marine armor, but is inferior against all damage types, especially sharp damage. One advantage of the Plasteel plate armor is that, having 810 hp, it lasts much longer than the marine armor, which only has 340 hp. Its movement penalty is heavier at -0.8c/s compared to -0.4/s for marine armor.
