"Warships hitpoints increased."
In-game description

Armor Plating is a technology in Age of Empires III that can be researched at the Dock once the Colonial Age is reached. Once researched, it increases the hit points of warships by 50%.

Strategy Edit

Armor Plating is very useful in Random Map games since the AI never research this technology, giving the player an edge on naval combat.
