T-45 power armor is a power armor model in Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout 4, Fallout 76, Fallout Shelter and Fallout Shelter: The Board Game.


The T-45 series of power armor was built by defense contractor West-Tek and served as the first power armor variant ever utilized by the U.S. military on the battlefield.[1][2] The power armor prototypes were slated to be part of an exhibit at the Museum of Technology in 2078.[3] Harold Frost, one of T-45's original designers, designed the Excavator power armor for the Garrahan Mining Company.[4] Following the Great War, many suits are still found throughout the wastelands, providing those who wear them substantial protection from threats.[2] The armor is utilized by the Brotherhood of Steel, including the Lyons' Brotherhood of Steel and the loyalist Outcasts.

  6. Lone Wanderer: "You got anything for me?"
    Everett: "Well, I'll be damned. That makes 100 ingots you found. And here I remember thinking you'd be lucky to bring back any at all. Ain't no question, you earned the treasure of my collection. This armor goes all the way back to when the Brotherhood tried to wipe out The Pitt. Some of the tribals who worshipped Ashur made it to look like their god. Try it on, and you'll feel a little like a god, yourself!"
    (Everett's dialogue)
  7. 7.0 7.1 Courier: "Tell me about the heavy troopers."
    Hanlon: "They have the best equipment the NCR can get its hands on, power armor salvaged from our war with the Brotherhood. Techs strip out the joint servos so you don't need special training to wear it. It feels like you're carrying a Brahmin on your back, but it can take a heck of a lot of punishment."
    (Hanlon's dialogue)


  1. The Prisoner: "{c16711680}Do you know how to use all that gear or is it just for show?"
    Armstrong: "{c255}I am trained in the use of light and heavy assault weapons and have fifty three hours of field experience in the T-45d Power Armor, citizen. Most of those were during the Anchorage Reclamation."
    Armstrong: "{c255}Well, here's the entrance to the vault, citizen. I have to head back to the City now. This T-45d eats up small energy cells like Chans at a rice buffet! Ha, ha, ha! Don't worry, though. We'll send those godless reds packing within the month!"
    The Prisoner: "{c16711680}Thanks, Corporal Armstrong! Goodbye."
    (Armstrong dialogue file)
  2. The Art of Fallout 3, p. 17: "The Brotherhood of Steel power armor was the first costume to be designed, and it was done entirely in 3D, skipping the concept art stage. This was an important piece to get right, as it had to feel true to the original, yet freshened and updated for this game's unique aesthetic."
