Brotherhood T-45d power armor is a type of armor in Fallout: New Vegas.


An otherwise identical Brotherhood of Steel-specific variant of T-45d power armor, providing a Damage Threshold of 22 and a bonus of 10% to Radiation Resistance, +2 to Strength and a -2 penalty to Agility. This DT is lower than that of T-51b power armor and Remnants power armor, but still provides protection equal or superior to all non-powered armor in the game.


  • Dead Wind Cavern, obtained near the legendary deathclaw. There is a dead Brotherhood of Steel member in a corner wearing the armor. This is also the same area where the unique weapon Mercy is located.
  • If the player convinces the Brotherhood of Steel to assist the New California Republic in the battle for Hoover Dam, two Brotherhood paladins wearing Brotherhood T-45d power armor will be present during the quest Eureka!


  • The armor serves as faction armor, allowing the Courier to disguise themselves as a member of the Brotherhood of Steel.
  • While speaking with Ricky, he may mention that he shot a member of the Brotherhood of Steel through the eyeslit of their helmet. The Courier will respond incredulously, remarking that the eyeslits of T-series power armor are bulletproof.[1]


PCPC Playstation 3Playstation 3 Xbox 360Xbox 360 Brotherhood of Steel paladins rarely wear Brotherhood T-45d power armor. This is because a key list, which indicates it is meant to hold Brotherhood T-45d power armor, is instead composed of Brotherhood T-51b power armor. This also results in armored Brotherhood members occasionally wearing T-51b armor with T-45d power helmets.[verified]


  1. Ricky: "I was walking along, minding my own, and up pops one of them Brotherhoods. He yells "Hand over that laser rifle, asshole!" So I hand it over, just to make him think I'm scared! But really I'm not! I never am! Before he knows what hit him, I draw my 11mm machinegun and BAM! BAM! Right through the eyeslit in his helmet! D.O.A.!"
    Courier: "What a load of crap. The eyeslits of T-series power armor are bullet-proof!"
    Ricky: "Then I guess this dumb fucker's armor musta been... D-series or something! All I know is, he died up real dead when I killed him, okay?"
