Sandwich type armor is the next stage of defense systems development; essentially it consists of hundreds of thin layers with different characteristics. Due to the complicated production process Multilayer Plating takes quite a long time to produce yet results in a very effective defense system, as most conventional weapons are simply unable to penetrate all of the layers. Multilayer Plating also has a certain degree of flexibility which allows it to absorb part of the kinetic energy of a projectiles impact.
