MANDALORIAN BATTLE ARMOUR


         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: 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.

To quote myself from an editorial I wrote about that exact subject.

"Okay, first off I'd like to say, my Mandalorian stats were written waaaaaaaaay back before the prequels, back before a lot of the books and games fleshed out the Mandies for us. When I wrote up the Mandalorians, all that existed about them could be summed up in a couple of sentences, "Boba Fett wore Mandalorian Armour." (note, not "was a Mandalorian", just wore their armour), and "The Mandalorians were involved in the Clone Wars".
Now, while I was writing up my Mandalorians, the Tales of the Jedi comics came out, which had the Mandalorians in them, and in the final frames showed they were aliens, who wore the armour all the time. On the internet at the time, it was decided that the Mandalorians allowed any species to join them, so long as they were sufficiently good warriors (which still kind of makes that scene make sense).
I could never really make the Mandalorians as portrayed then (and now) make any sense, they were excellent warriors with a code of honour (Star Wars Klingons basically). Warrior cultures don't make sense in Science Fiction to me, especially ones portrayed like the Mandalorians as having superior technology. I can't see how a scientist who has to go out and beat people up in the evenings to prove he is an excellent warrior, and drags himself off to battle (and therefore stands a fair to average chance of getting killed) is naturally a superior scientist to the guy who just sits in his lab 18 hours a day, 365 days a year.
So I decided, that the online version of the Mandalorians done by Talon Karrde, which had the Mandalorians given technology by another species to be a sensible solution."

And to answer the final question once again, it came from my mind, before everyone else decided on established canon. (hey everybody, the established canon in the 1980's was that the mandalorians were wiped out in the clone wars, and Boba Fett was either the last Mandalorian warrior, or had fought against them during the clone wars. It turns out, he never did either since was just a nipper, and the mandalorians were extinct long before that (Jango was adopted by the last one, or something like that), with LucasArts making the Clone Wars TV series, all it takes is one random comment from George Lucas and established canon is gone forever).

A question, how does established canon explain the aliens wearing the Mandalorian masks in Tales of the Jedi?

Nicely done! Is there any books around which provide references to Mandalore and Beskar'gam?
