- Originally, this armor was to be called Nord Plate Armor, according to the book of concept art which came with the collectors version of the game.
- It was supposed to have a matching Steel Plate Shield, as seen in The Official Guide to Skyrim. Statistics for this were 28 armor, 14 weight, and 325 value.
- Jarl Balgruuf the Greater wears a set of this armor without the helmet during the Battle for Whiterun.
- At low levels, the entire set (except for the helmet) can be obtained by finding Uthgerd the Unbroken, brawling her, recruiting her as a follower, then killing her.
- Due to its high value, crafting Steel Plate Armor instead of regular Steel Armor is a good way to level up Smithing faster.
- This armor is very similar in protection to Orcish Armor without the shield.
