A superior version of combat armor. The Brotherhood of Steel have made many improvements over the standard version.— Fallout 2 In-game description

The Brotherhood armor is a piece of armor in Fallout and Fallout 2.


Main article: Combat armor

A diverse family of personal body armor with varying degrees of sophistication, providing balanced protection against both energy and ballistic damage.[1] A wide variety of such armor can be found throughout the wastelands, ranging from the early iterations developed by the United States Army to the cutting-edge riot gear that came into use prior to the Great War.[2]


Brotherhood armor is a superior version of combat armor, including several Brotherhood of Steel technological upgrades. Its distinguishing marks include pale green/gray coloring of the armor panels, blue trim on the chest armor panels, a brilliant silver gorget and underarmor breastplate and pronounced riveting on the pauldrons. Its Damage Threshold and Damage Resistances are strictly superior to those of the combat armor Mk II. However, its armor class is identical, and it weighs more.

Despite these improvements, the armor may already be obsolete by the time it is found. This is especially true in Fallout 2, where this armor and the power armor share the same locker. It is still useful for companions. This armor is also issued to all initiates of the Brotherhood of Steel.
