Basically, in my alternate timeline, technology advances a lot more quickly, and in the 16th century, humanity lives among the stars.
Energy-based weapons are commonplace, and powerful kinetic weapons are present as well.
A new, experimental type of armor is known as a fractal armor. It has an in-built force field built to protect from kinetic weapons(cannot stop energy and light based weapons), but the fractal armor has 99.99 percent reflective ability. Would this be effective as an all-purpose armor on the battlefield?
EDIT: in ‘reflection’ means like a mirror
