|For an overview of combat armor variants in all games, as well as background information, see Combat armor.|
Combat armors were designed to provide balanced protection without limiting user mobility. They are a diverse family of personal body armor with varying degrees of sophistication, ranging from the earliest iterations developed by the United States Army to the cutting-edge riot gears that came into use prior to the Great War.
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.
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.
