Jor-El in Standard Kryptonian Battle Armor

Jor-El wearing armor of the house of El.

The armor would be worn over their standard under clothing. On the chest, the armor would display the wearer's house symbol. The armor would be worn over standard Kryptonian chain mail and would be assembled piece by piece.[1]

Weapon Capabilities

Certain armors, such as the armor worn by General Zod, were equipped with retractable blades within the gantlets.[1]

Faults and Weaknesses

Though offering extra protection, the armor does not protect the wearer from energy blasts from Kryptonian rifles. The separation of the armor pieces also leaves unprotected spots that can be taken advantage of in combat, an example being General Zod able to fatally wound Jor-El by stabbing him between pieces.[1]
