The US Army combat armor is a piece of armor in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Lonesome Road.


Main article: Combat armor
Modeled after the human silhouette, 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[1] to the cutting-edge riot gears that came into use prior to the Great War.[2]


A suit of standard US Army combat armor, consisting of olive drab armor plates affixed to a brown uniform. A single golden chevron is painted on each pauldron, denoting the owner as a private. There are pouches added to the armor and the shoulder plates are shaped differently in comparison to other combat armor models. The armor offers a higher Damage Threshold than normal combat armor or reinforced combat armor, and slightly less than combat armor, reinforced mark 2.

The US Army combat armor gives a bonus to the Guns and Survival skills, which are listed on the effects screen of the Pip-Boy as "Superior Training."
