The advanced power armor Mk II,[1][2][3][4][5] often simply called Enclave power armor and nicknamed Black Devil armor by Brotherhood paladins[6][7] is a high-end model of power armor used exclusively by the Enclave's Department of the Army and developed after the Great War and the destruction of the Enclave Oil Rig in 2241. It is composed entirely of lightweight composites rather than the usual combination of metal and composite plates found on the previous designation of advanced power armor, the MK I.[8]

Its design is substantially different from another, earlier model of the MK II.

BackgroundEdit

The advanced power armor Mark II represents a significant upgrade over the older Mark I. It is composed entirely of lightweight ceramic composites, providing even more protection than the regular advanced power armor.[8] Unlike the Mark I, the Mark II features a large profile, and more effective, segmented armor plates to achieve a superior degree of protection, with the hump replaced with pauldrons that evoke old world power armor designs, such as the T-45. The helmet assembly retains the insectoid eyepiece arrangement of the Mark I helmet, but the overall shape has been changed to an even more insect-like appearance, with a reduced vertical profile.[9]The suit was originally available in limited qualities. Following the destruction of the oil rig and the flight to the Capital Wasteland, the Enclave has designated the Mark II as its official service uniform and manufactured it en masse once it gained access to Raven Rock and Adams AFB, eventually displacing the older, less protective Mark I suits entirely.[10]

CharacteristicsEdit

The set consists of two pieces, the body armor and helmet. Like all power armor, Power Armor Training is required to equip it. It provides +1 Strength and -1 Agility; one less Strength bonus and Agility penalty than the T-45d power armor. There is also a 5% increase to Radiation Resistance. Enclave power armor is also slightly more durable than standard T-45d power armor.
