Gothic plate arms have more mobility than Milanese due to the “tethered” system of fastening elements.
Parts of the armor are not connected by mechanical joints with a limited degree of freedom, but tied to each other with leather laces threaded through holes in the elements of the armor.
This allows the iron parts to move much more freely and increases the mobility of the hands.
