The armor really isn't that far out. in the gulf war perfectly good soviet made
tanks had a very hard time doing any damage to the M1-A1s armor. why do you have
such a hard time believing that such a super armor could be built hundreds of
years in the future? It is also very rare and cost prohibitive which is why only
a few MSs have it.

The original RX-78 was a super weapon that was eventually destroyed by another
super weapon.
