Mandalorian armour is the very symbol of Mandalorian technological superiority, and the most common sight when facing Mandalorian forces. Although the armour is regularly improved and modified, the same general look is maintained, and armour suits from thousands of years ago are only slightly different on a visual inspection.
The armour is based on technology introduced to the Mandalorian Empire by the Juannar, who required advanced armour and atmosphere suit technology to venture away from their homeworld. Adapted for use by the more physically robust Mandalorians, this technology gave their troops an edge in combat from the very start, and it is mainly down to this technology that the Mandalorians, who have been vastly outnumbered by their opponents in virtually every conflict they have ever entered, to become a feared and greatly respected fighting force throughout the galaxy.
Although Mandalorian troops are well disciplined and maintain a strict fighting order, they are encouraged to decorate their armour and individualise it, however even this small amount of encouraged individuality is forbidden when circumstances warrant, and Mandalorian armour is often modified for special missions. These modifications may vary from addition of extended air tanks for missions in hostile environments, right down to camoflage colour schemes for missions and service on jungle or ice worlds.
Description: This is the lightest of the Mandalorian Armours as used by Jango and Boba Fett, usually issued to Mandalorian scouts, but is also used by their pilots as a spacesuit/ survival suit should they become seperated from their ship. The armour contains all of the basic systems that make the armour unique, but is primarily designed to be light and maneuverable.
Description: Although only visually differing from the Scout armour by the addition of a few armoured plates, the systems on this armour are considerably more powerful. These suits are the most common armour used by the Mandalorian military, issued to regular infantry, Mandalorians prefer the freedom to fight that this armour allows them rather than using combat vehicles such as walkers.
Description: This is the armour given to Elite soldiers and officers, the feared Mandalorian Super Commandoes use this armour. The armour is also issued to officers in the field, their one perk since they must fight side by side with their men.
Description: The best armour that the Juannar and Mandalorian technicians could build, these suits cost millions of credits to construct. These suits are only issued to members of the Mandalorian Imperial Government, and the Mandalorian Emperors Elite Guard. Not only because of the value, but because of the honour attached to this armour it is NEVER allowed into the hands of non-mandalorians, since this would be considered a surrender of their Imperial power, and an insult to the Mandalorian people.

Very good job. Enjoyed reading it, and would very much like to read more about the troop types of Mandaloria.
anybody have a shareable copy of the Mandalorian sourcebook by chance?
Grrr, the Mandalorian Sourcebook is a bit of a sore point here. The author of it linked to it from Holonet, and it had no attribution to where its stats had come from (this site was heavily used). When I commented on that all he'd done was five minutes copy and pasting into a word document, he complained that it had taken far longer than that. No offers of attribution, no apologies, no nothing. Grrr, I say, Grrrr.
Not to be a nag.. But there's not a Mandalorian Emperor... Or a Mandalorian Imperial Government.... Or a Mandalorian Imperial Government.
