This is a vhs promotional video about a videogame.

さらにタクティクスオウガでは、ユニットの武器や防具による攻撃、魔法攻撃、各ユニットの特性を生かした攻撃など、バラエティーに富んだアクションをもフルアニメーションで構成。

My question is, if 武器や防具による攻撃 means "weapon and armor attacks", how can "armor" attack?

    Have you ever been hit with a shield? :) I haven't but I imagine it wouldn't feel good. – Leebo Jan 14 at 22:19
  • @Leebo Can shields be used as weapons in Tactics Ogre LUCT? I know for a fact, after having beaten FFT 3 times, that a player can't attack with their shield, at least in that game. – SomaRise Jan 14 at 22:36
  • This just in. Apparently, after hours of searching, it appears that in this game you CAN use shields as weapons. I'll be damned. tacticsogre.fandom.com/wiki/…). – SomaRise Jan 14 at 22:44
  • There are at least some games in which having certain pieces of equipment on lets you use special moves - that's what I would have assumed this refers to – Angelos Jan 14 at 22:45
  • "armor" can also refer to a tank in English... but it seems unlikely here – Igor Skochinsky Jan 14 at 23:06

Yes it's "attacks using armors", or more specifically, shields. From this blog article:

また、盾は防具としてだけでなく、剣や斧などのように射程距離1マスの近接武器として使うことも可能。盾を構えて体当たりをくらわす、いわゆる「シールドバッシュ」ですね。
与えるダメージは極めて小さいですが、相手の体重(装備重量)が軽ければ1マスぶん突き飛ばすことができます。

Some other games (eg Dark Souls) have this feature.
