Before we start, no, I'm not stupid, I know that I need this, agility and magic together to level the playing field, but one at a time.

As I mentioned before, dragons can synthesize, break down, and thus effectively utilize graphene in their bodies.

Here's their size: enter image description here Human on the picture is 180 cm tall, some proportions don't accurately represent my dragon (that jaw is criminally small)

So, when I say resistance, I mean damage reduction (DR), i.e: the bullets are stopped by the dragon's armor. I obviously don't expect them to withstand anti-material rifles and such, I have the [That's my JAMMED] spell for those.

So, how could the dragon's armor withstand sustained fire?

Judgment process: I lay out criteria, in priorities, the answer that meets the highest, or the highest and the most of the other ones, wins.

Priorities:

  • It should withstand the highest possible caliber, multiple times on the same spot. Of course, dragons are fast but I'm assuming a worst-case scenario.
  • Light, it should be light.

Remember, graphene, though being able to disperse kinetic energy 10 times better than steel, is a reinforcing material. DON'T use it in itself, please!

So, I guess it's a duplicate, after all, [beep] Ok, so, I guess we could go with the mantis shrimp's club as a basis.

  • $\begingroup$ Highest possible calibre is a bit hard. Do you mean handheld weapon? If you are talking antitank weaponry, it is likely not possible $\endgroup$ – Whitecold Mar 17 '19 at 13:37
  • $\begingroup$ @Whitecold The emphasis is on multiple times, I don't know what the highest caliber, it can stop, is $\endgroup$ – Mephistopheles Mar 17 '19 at 13:53
