High tech armor, made out of advanced defensive polymers.— Fallout 2 In-game description

Combat armor mk II is a piece of armor in Fallout 2.


Main article: Combat armor
First created in 2051, the military-grade combat armor was designed to protect key sections of the human body from ballistic trauma with hard armored plates made from complex polymers and ceramics, with a flexible body suit interwoven with thermal-dissipative membranes and bulletproof material. The earliest models of the combat armor were manufactured as specific plates mounted on combat webbing, although as the technology improved, body-enclosing suits of armor were created and entered active combat duty, though in limited quantities. The armor came with a matte-finish olive drab coloring by default, making it suitable for woodland and/or urban camouflage.

Prior to the Great War, combat armor was nearly exclusively the property of military forces and special police units. Currently-available historical documentation shows users only in the North American continent, but allied nations were likely to possess identical or similar systems. Combat armor was the de facto armor of the United States military, issued to all combat soldiers not in the powered armor units. Additionally, at least one Canadian partisan was caught on camera wearing a suit of combat armor.

Civilian ownership of combat armor was highly restricted. A special permit was required from the Bureau of Alcohol, Drugs, Tobacco, Firearms and Lasers for private ownership of the combat armor.


A new version of Combat armor, designed to replace the Combat armor reinforced, this high tech suit was created as a heavier, more protective armor reserved for use by American shock troops and special forces.[1]

It is superior to regular combat armor, but generally inferior to Brotherhood armor. Mark II combat armor has 5 more AC than Brotherhood armor, and an increased resistance to explosive weaponry, but Brotherhood armor has superior resistances and thresholds for everything else.

It cannot be used to gain combat implants.
