[size=7]True Soldiers - Guards, Stormcloak and Imperial Legion Armors Fix[/size]
Have you ever wondered why soldiers in Skyrim have so poor armor? I had. It doesn't make sense when bandits are equipped better than hold guards, Imperial soldiers or even Stormcloak rebels, who control (and gather taxes from) half of the province. It's also weird when leather armor is more expensive and gives better protection than short chainmail and gambeson (Stormcloak uniform). This small mod solves this issue by giving armor other stats which are based on their appearance.

4.0 New version is out. Now Stormcloak/guard armor is as strong as leather armor but a little heavier. More balanced this way.

3.0 Stormcloak Officer Armor is now as strong as Scaled Armor.
Also added some small fixes

2.0. Now in line with Weapons and Armor Fixes Remade 5.1

1.1 Now Stormcloak and Hold Guard cuirasses as well as helmets provide same protection as Elven armor. However they still are much heavier and I also made them cheaper than Elven (but they still are more expensive than leather). This solves several balance and lore issues.
Stormcloak cuirass now also has same weight as hold guard's cuirasses.
1.0 Initial release.
Imperial light. studded, Penitus Oculatus armor a little stronger.
Imperial heavy armor same as steel armor.
Stormcloak and guads cuirass and helmet as strong as elven armor but a little heavier and cheaper.

This is my first mod. Your suggestions, criticism and endorsements are very welcome.
