Recon armor is a piece of armor in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas.


It is a suit of light armor designed to be a comfortable under-armor for the T-45d power armor suit developed by the United States. The recon armor is a vacuum-sealed asbestos jumpsuit covering the entire body. Attached to it is the interface and mounts for the T-45d power armor. Its purpose is twofold - it allows the user to actually operate the armor, as well as protect soft tissue from moving parts inside the suit. Unlike the under-armor for the T-51b power armor models, this one is also designed to offer limited protection from anti-personnel weapons.
