Lamellar Armor is an improvement on scale armor and it was quite a universal style of armor; warriors of Eastern Europe and Russia, the Middle East, China and Japan all wore localized forms of lamellar armor. When tightly tied and well-crafted it is an excellent form of plate defense that is also easier to construct en-masse than form-fitted western style plate armor. Armorers could churn out many small, identical plates that could then be tied and fastened into armor to fit each individual warrior.

Both practical and protective, it is easy to understand why lamellar armor was the armor of choice for much of the world for many centuries. The armor could be seen on warriors as varied as the Rus, the Late Byzantines, the Mongols, the Chinese, Japanese and the warriors of India. A most impressive suit of lamellar can be seen in the Royal Armouries in Leeds, England - it was created for a War Elephant.
