function of Cardassian armour?

That metal carapace is a bit of a medieval piece of kit for the 24th century! It's not like anyone except a Klingon would come at you with a bladed weapon anymore so what exactly is it meant to protect against?
O.k., I know, I know, it's obviously design - makes the uniform look more sleek and threatening. But they could at have tossed in some nominal explanation of why s.th. so archaic-seeming is necessary. Say, if it was some special alloy or something that had the effect of partially deflecting/lessening the impact of phaser fire, now that'd make some sense...
