They'd need an awful lot of metal to protect 3000 riders --- even if they just covered the vital parts. Something like fencing armor might protect without impairing mobility. Some kind of armored car for the flamethrower crews might have been useful, too.

Aluminum --- I think there was a mention of newly-discovered ore that produced a very light metal in Skies of Pern, not sure where.
