Not really. Mail-and-plate is like lamellar except that the plates are connected with metal rings instead of lacing. There is no backing. It was a clever way to eliminate a lot of the problems inherent in lamellar.

What you are thinking of is Roman. It consists of small scales integrated into a mail backing. It is often erroneously called lorica plumata but a more accurate term is lorica hamata squamataque. The Loadouts book (p.23) has stats for it.
