Lighter Armor is a technology that can be researched at the Troop Center in Tech Level 3. It costs 100 Food, and gives Troop Center units +5% speed. It must be researched before Dexterity becomes available.

The technology is cheap, and will allow the player's Troopers to enter and escape combat more quickly.

"By enhancing infantry armor without compromising its durability, this Tech Level 3 upgrade effectively allows all Troop Centre units to move more quickly."
