The T-51b powered infantry armor is designed with the latest passive defense features for both civilian and military disturbances. The back-mounted TX-28 MicroFusion Pack generates 60,000 Watts to power the HiFlo hydraulic systems built into the frame of the suit.Power armor specs

T-51b powered Infantry armor or power armor represented the peak of armored infantry technology before the Great War. Now, only the most technologically advanced factions with ties to the pre-War American military or federal government, such as the Brotherhood of Steel or the Enclave, have access to this type of power armor.

Background

Main article: T-51b power armor

A pre-War product of West Tek in conjunction with the United States government, T-51 power armor is made of a poly-laminate composite, shielding the user from radiation and damage while providing increased strength.[1][2]

Variants

Hardened power armor: A suit of that has undergone a special chemical hardening process.[3] A hardened suit retains the original's bonuses: +3 Strength and +30 Radiation Resistance. To the right, resistance statistics between normal and hardened are displayed.

Locations

Map Location Description
Lost Hills

1. Reward from Talus for rescuing an initiate (requires 16 reputation).
2. Repair a damaged suit on level three.
3. Boxes in the locked storeroom (contains two suits).

Note: After the first lockpick attempt all nearby Brotherhood members turn hostile. Senior paladins and senior scribes do not come out of the storeroom, so the second attempt is impossible (when closing in on the door, the battle starts). The only possible way to lockpick the storeroom during combat is to use an electronic lock pick.

  • The initiate is in the Old Town section of the Hub. He will be located in the building directly below the entry point. He can be freed by killing his guards.
  • Will require a Repair check to complete the suit.
