Combat armor is among the best forms of protection in the post-War wasteland. Although extremely expensive, the protection value of this armor and its variants is surpassed only by power armor. It was designed to sheath the human body as completely as possible with a high-durability armor.
这种军用级别的战甲诞生于2051年，用于保护人体关键部位不受弹道武器的伤害。盔甲里包括耐热膜和一些防弹材料，装甲板主要由坚硬的复合陶瓷等聚合物制成。最早版本的战斗盔甲比较简陋，就是一些装甲板用武装带组合在一起。随着技术的进步，全身穿着型的盔甲被发明出来并投入实战，不过数量比较有限。这种盔甲一般都有着草绿色的迷彩涂装，适用于丛林以及都市的战斗。<section begin="background" /><section end="background" />
The combination armor layers of a suit of adequately-maintained combat armor grant the wearer significant protection from most types of damage, including laser, plasma, ballistic (bullets, shrapnel), and blast damage - uncommon for personal armor. Furthermore, it does so without the extreme weight inherent in most battle armor systems of the 20th and 21st centuries. In summary, combat armor provides outstanding protection at comparatively low-weight and high-comfort levels.
戰前的使用编辑在大战之前，战斗盔甲几乎是军队和特警的专属装备。根据资料来看，这种盔甲的配备范围仅限于北美大陆，不过其他地区的盟国似乎也有类似的装备。实际上，这种盔甲也是美军的制式装备之一，配备给那些没有穿动力盔甲的士兵。但是，据说不止一名加拿大的游击队员被拍摄到穿着这种盔甲。<section begin="background" />
平民也不是完全不可能拥有这种盔甲，不过有着严格的限制。私人想要入手这件盔甲必须拿到菸酒槍藥及雷射管理局的许可才行。<section end="background" />
After the war, it became a valuable item, especially as the number of usable suits dwindled in the centuries that followed. Only those who are either very wealthy, very well-connected, very skilled, or simply very lucky own combat armor - and even for those people, finding a suit can be a task.
In 2161, combat armor was rare outside large population centers. The Gun Runners that originated in the Hub owned and wore several sets, while a few merchants had a suit available for sale at extremely high costs. The armor was also used by the Hub police. The Brotherhood initiates used a superior variant.
In 2241, the armor became more popular, used by the Vault City guard, New California Republic Rangers, Hubologist guards and even some raiders, as evidence by Bishop's mercenary raider captains and Darion's elite raiders. The selling price was lower, but locating a set of the armor was still difficult. Shops in San Francisco often had a set or two in stock, but usually for $12,000 or more.
In 2281, pre-war combat armor remains uncommon. The bulk of the NCR Army makes its own armors, most troops are issued inferior hide breastplates. However, the NCR Ranger patrol armor handmade in the NCR is on-par with pre-war combat armor. Various forms of riot armor are also used by NCR troopers (only on the Long 15), NCR Rangers, and NCR riot control. Despite not being used by the major nation-states converging on the area, abandoned sets of combat armor can still be found through scavenging, and it is still used by mercenaries and notably, the Gun Runners, making it uncommon, but not unseen.
In 2277, the combat armor is fairly commonplace in the Capital Wasteland, owing to the heavy military presence in and around the capitol region, and the heavily populated east coast in general. Combat armor used by several factions have recolored it to fit their profile.
In the Commonwealth, combat armor remains commonplace, being the armor of choice of the large raider-mercenary faction known as the Gunners, who are not dissimilar similar to Talon Company. Pieces of combat armor can also be found in the possession some Raiders or Minutemen, or found in shops or containers.
Combat armor in Fallout and Fallout 2 consists of an armored breastplate with a matching helmet and boots worn over a black long sleeve shirt and brown pants. In Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas it appears as green bodysuit worn with combat webbing over which armored plates are mounted. In Fallout 4, combat armor is a series of modular plates on combat webbing to be worn over Army fatigues or Military fatigues, with superior versions incorporating a flak jacket and additional panels. Combat armor offers excellent protection at a lighter weight than other armors, but is considerably less common.
In Fallout 4, combat armor comes in 3 forms, with the latter 2 having the "sturdy" and "heavy" prefix added, respectively. The first form is simply just combat armor plates on webbing covering the chest and partially covering the upper arms and thighs. The sturdy version includes a flak jacket and additional plates for the forearms and shins. The heavy form provides superior protection, it covers nearly the entire body and provides the highest and most balanced protection of any armor; it is also the lightest of all the heavy armors.

Winterized combat armor编辑
This winterized version was used by the United States during the Anchorage Reclamation campaign in Alaska. The winterized combat armor includes snow goggles, a mask and protective bracers in addition to the other features already present in combat armor.
Winterized medic combat armor编辑
A special winterized version was used by doctors and medics during the Anchorage Reclamation campaign in Alaska. It closely resembles the winterized combat armor, except it doesn't have the mask and black goggles for the helmet, and has a red cross symbol on the back.
Combat armor Mk II编辑
A superior version of combat armor in Fallout 2, it is very similar in appearance to the standard set, though slightly bulkier in the inventory screen. This set of combat armor was typically issued to special forces and troops tasked with breaking through enemy lines. Combat armor Mk II provides superior protection in every day compared to its predecessor, at the cost of a minor weight increase.

An improved version of the reinforced combat armor, this high tech suit was created as a heavier, more protective armor likely used by special forces. The suit consists of a huge chestpeice covering most of the torso in thick armor plating, and is the strongest form of combat armor, providing greater protection against all forms of damage.
Sim regen armor编辑
A version cut from the final version of the Fallout 3 add-on, Operation: Anchorage. It is identical in appearance to standard combat armor, but automatically heals crippled limbs.
Brotherhood combat armor编辑
The Brotherhood of Steel has also developed their own improvement on the reinforced combat armor. Brotherhood armor boasts significantly-improved defensive ratings in all forms of damage. However, this armor did not see widespread use as its holdings were zealously restricted to the ranks of the Brotherhood and those who had been of unique assistance to the Brotherhood. Its distinguishing marks includes pale green/gray coloring of the armor panels, blue trim on the chest armor panels, a light gray body suit, and pronounced riveting on the pauldrons.
A weaker version of combat armor used by the Tenpenny Tower Security and Rivet City security after the War. The Tenpenny Tower version is very similar to the basic combat armor but with a desert color, while the Rivet City one has a black color with headgear that resembles a riot helmet rather than the usual combat helmet.
Talon combat armor编辑
Reilly's Rangers combat armor编辑

Unrelated to the combat armors listed above, riot armor was created before the war and used by the Los Angeles Police Department and the United States Armed Forces. In the Mojave Wasteland, it has become the signature armor of the NCR Rangers.
先进镇暴裝甲编辑镇暴盔甲相比，这种的肩甲部位更大，移到了大衣外面，胸部的装甲板看起来更綠一些，前臂部位也增加了厚实的装甲板。It also has a faded 第11装甲兵团 emblem on the helmet. The suit itself looks a lot thicker and the duster looks darker along with a cleaner appearance. The eyes of the helmet glow red at night, much like the NCR Ranger combat armor during the Fallout: New Vegas intro. The helmet's air-filtering system seems to be more advanced, and there is a Flashlight on the side of the helmet, however, this cannot be used by the player or any other character. The suit also weighs 5 pounds less than standard riot gear, NCR Ranger combat armor, or even Desert Ranger combat armor.
