  4. 4. Armor is vital because it protects you from getting killed.<br />Armor is very expensive to buy.<br />They have to fit perfectly, or things could go very wrong, like getting killed or injured.<br />The nicer your armor was, the higher class you were.<br />It was about 50 pounds, heavy, but light enough to allow you to fight.<br />Made out of garments, chain mail, and iron plates.<br />Covered the most vulnerable parts of the body.<br />Armor <br />

  12. 12. Pre-battle planning to prepare for the real thing, fighting with uneven numbers, on horse and off horse. <br />Keep a good 60 or more soldiers back to protect the castle from invasion, send the rest to the scene<br />Send ships with cannons to attack the opposing castle, use naval skills to take down the castle <br />Use gunpowder (not in guns) for cannons and bombs, any poorly trained knight could win with gunpowder <br />Take captives and torture them for information <br />Have a variety of knights, foot soldiers, and archers <br />Fighting Strategies<br />
