Hvy Armor is a technology that can be researched at the War Center in Tech Level 4. It costs 250 Food and 250 Nova, and gives Troop Center units +1 armor and +2 pierce armor. Light Armor must be researched before it becomes available.
This is the last and most expensive of the Trooper armor upgrades at the War Center, and should be researched if the player still uses Troop Center units in their army.
"At Tech Level 4, Troop Centre units' armor may be improved even further."
- The Hvy Armor icon depicts the armor worn by Bossk.
