Magical Armor of Karna

Karna (Sanskrit: कर्ण, IAST transliteration: Karṇa), is an integral Hindu King that played a tremendous role in the epic battle known as Mahābhārata. He was renowned for his skills as a warrior and his ability to defeat others in battle. In Karna’s arsenal of weapons was his armor. This armor, known as Kavacha, is completely impenetrable, even by weapons wielded by Gods.

Throughout the vast Indian Sub-Continent, warriors have sought this armor as it has passed through the hands of many. Recorded data has shown that no other armor has had the ability to withstand the same amount of damage as that experienced by Karna’s Kavacha.

In the year 1990, the Kavacha was stolen from the Indian Defense Quarters Research labs and has not resurfaced since. The Indian Government and countless historical societies have called for the return of the object in exchange for a generous award.


The crafting of armor has been known for ages, differing in designs and strength from Europe to Asia. However, the crafting of Karna’s armor is unique to its own and experts on historical artifacts and design are unaware how to even replicate such armor. The metals used to design this armor are still unknown to man and are not found within our galaxy. Additionally, the metal is highly malleable, contouring to the shape of the wearer and resizing once it is removed.

The earliest record of trying to replicate the design of Karna’s armor dates back to 600 BC in the labs of Cyrus the Great. Despite being scientifically advanced, he and his researchers were not able to replicate the armor.

Since Cyrus the Great, King Karna’s armor has prompted metals production research to ensue all over Europe and Asia. However, as modern science has proven, the metal(s) contained in the armor are unknown to our galaxy and possibly beyond.Additionally, the metal does not act in accordance to the rules of solid objects.
