Unless these suits of armor were made exclusively for jousting, they have no practical application on the battlefield as you can not move your arm fully upward; the shoulder piece prevents it in all except the 4th picture. Also, if you get knocked over you're probably not getting back up without assistance as these things were considerably weighty and cumbersome. I would imagine it difficult in the extreme to be nimble and light on your feet and impossible to keep your balance while fighting in these get-ups.
