Armour
Armour or armor (see spelling differences) is a covering that is used to protect an object, individual, or vehicle from direct contact weapons or projectiles, usually during combat, or from a dangerous environment or action (e.g., cycling, construction sites, etc.). Personal armour is used to protect soldiers and such war animals as war horses (the application for the latter called barding). Vehicle armour is used on warships and armoured fighting vehicles.

Armour (Armor)
The defense of the knight against the weapons of his opponents, consisting of his complete harness . Often this was used only to denote the "hard" bits of the harness, the hardened leather or plate defenses, rather than the softer arming garments, though sometimes layered cloth was also used as the sole defense, as in a jupon . I use the English spelling with the "-our" rather than the Americanized version to denote the difference between modern armored combat vehicles (e.g. tanks) and armour that is meant for the individual medieval soldier.
