Description: Mandalorian armor referred to the traditional armor worn by the human warrior clans of Mandalore. Common traits included a helmet with a T-shaped visor that concealed their faces, and armaments like whipcord throwers, flamethrowers and jetpacks.

The Mandalorians' bloody history made their armor an iconic symbol of fear. The bounty hunter Jango and his cloned son Boba Fett wore customized Mandalorian armor, although neither of the Fetts were Mandalorian warriors.

Generally, the armor was made from beskar, a highly durable metal which was able to withstand even blastershot fire while giving the user maximum protection, however, some variants existed made from durasteel. Because of the durability of the beskar metal, some armor sets were hundreds of years old, such as in the case of Sabine Wren's armor.

The Arc Pulse Generator, an Imperial superweapon, was capable of superheating the beskar alloy used in Mandalorian armor to incinerate its wearer.

The ancient Mandalorian crusaders wore helmets over cloaks. The Mandalorian Neo-Crusaders also wore helmets. After encountering the Jedi during the early crusades, the Mandalorian-Jedi War began and it was during this period that the Mandalorians created their signature armor, weaponry and fighting style in order to combat the Jedi Knights and their Force abilities.

By the Mandalorian Civil War, two styles of this armor had emerged—the formidable traditional armor of the warrior clans like Death Watch, and those of the pacifist New Mandalorians. Death Watch's female warriors, the Nite Owls, wore a different set of armor.
Jango Fett wore Mandalorian armor, though Prime Minister Almec expressed bewilderment as to how since Fett was a bounty hunter rather than a Mandalorian. The Kaminoans who cloned him to create the Grand Army of the Republic took inspiration from his suit for the clone trooper armor.

Design

Traditional Mandalorian armor consisted of a helmet, shoulder pauldrons, vambraces, breastplate, codpiece, kneepads, thigh and shin guards clasped over a body stocking. Mandalorian helmets often had a macrobinocular viewplate, tactical displays, a comlink and an antenna tipped with a rangefinder that could be pulled over the viewplate to enhance imagery. Sabine Wren programmed a holo-imager in her rangefinder to take snapshots. They wore magnetized shoes.

Mandalorian vambraces were computer-controlled tools bristling with weaponry designed to combat the abilities of a Jedi. They potentially included:


  • Flamethrowers
  • Wrist lasers
  • Wrist rockets
  • Whipcord throwers
  • Projectile buzzsaws
  • Shield emitters
  • Retractable wrist blades
  • Kamino saberdarts
  • Grappling lines
  • Paralyzing darts
  • Repulsors


The Mandalorians used many models of jetpacks, including the Z-6 jetpack, to increase maneuverability in combat as well as fly. These were often tipped with a launcher that were used to fire anti-vehicle homing missiles. However, they could also be used to fire a grappling hook linked to an internal winch. Gyro-stabilizers made it easy to maneuver in the air, although the tank only contained enough fuel for twenty short bursts of flight.
