==Nano-laminated Armor Vulnerabilities==
 
The Nano-laminated armor states currently that it's weak to napalm based attacks.  I was wondering if we should change it to be a weakness to thermal damage or just a weakness to high temperatures?  It doesn't seem to be a weakness to napalm specifically from what I've seen, otherwise it would probably mention that the chemical composition of napalm weakens it or something.  The way the article's worded, it seems like it's just melted by high temperatures.    [[User:Rui Usagi|Rui Usagi]] ([[User talk:Rui Usagi|talk]]) 22:08, November 29, 2015 (UTC)

Maybe we should just say that nepalm is capable of melting it, since that's what we know for now. That's different and more specific than "Nepalm-based attacks" and more specific to what we know for now. -[[User:SonicSP|SuperSonicSP]] ([[User talk:SonicSP|talk]]) 14:11, December 2, 2015 (UTC)

Nano-laminated Armor Vulnerabilities

The Nano-laminated armor states currently that it's weak to napalm based attacks.  I was wondering if we should change it to be a weakness to thermal damage or just a weakness to high temperatures?  It doesn't seem to be a weakness to napalm specifically from what I've seen, otherwise it would probably mention that the chemical composition of napalm weakens it or something.  The way the article's worded, it seems like it's just melted by high temperatures.    Rui Usagi (talk) 22:08, November 29, 2015 (UTC)

The referenced source is episode 7. The context is that while Isaribi is fleeing from the Hammerhead, Biscuit warns they have to maintain enough distance or they'll "be in range of Anti-Ship Napalm". A pair of missiles come at them, one is shot down, the other looks to detonate closer, if not hit the ship, and that causes Biscuit to complain that if they "keep getting hit by Napalm, even the Nano-laminate will melt". There doesn't seem to be an outright implication of it being weak in that, nor that it's weak to Napalm specifically, just that continued damage will degrade the armor.
It makes sense if you think about it - Nano-laminate is a topical application that they're using in paint form, capable of being mixed for different colors. Over time and abuse the paint will wear. It's very similar to the anti-beam coatings used in other timelines, usually on shields, where it can block several hits from beams and even beam sabers, but eventually wears out. -- Jadzi (talk) 16:43, February 25, 2016 (UTC)
