The combat armor and the matching combat helmet are pieces of armor in Fallout: New Vegas.

BackgroundEdit

Main article: Combat armor
First created in 2051, the military-grade combat armor was designed to protect key sections of the human body from ballistic trauma with hard armored plates made from complex polymers and ceramics, with a flexible body suit interwoven with thermal-dissipative membranes and bulletproof material. The earliest models of the combat armor were manufactured as specific plates mounted on combat webbing, although as the technology improved, body-enclosing suits of armor were created and entered active combat duty, though in limited quantities. The armor came with a matte-finish olive drab coloring by default, making it suitable for woodland and/or urban camouflage.

Prior to the Great War, combat armor was nearly exclusively the property of military forces and special police units. Currently-available historical documentation shows users only in the North American continent, but allied nations were likely to possess identical or similar systems. Combat armor was the de facto armor of the United States military, issued to all combat soldiers not in the powered armor units. Additionally, at least one Canadian partisan was caught on camera wearing a suit of combat armor.

Civilian ownership of combat armor was highly restricted. A special permit was required from the Bureau of Alcohol, Drugs, Tobacco, Firearms and Lasers for private ownership of the combat armor (though it was marketed to US citizens without mentioning this fact).

CharacteristicsEdit

Identical in appearance to the version found in Fallout 3, and unlike the one in Fallout and Fallout 2, the combat armor available in the Mojave is short-sleeved, having only the pauldrons and chestplates covering the torso. The combat helmet's shaded visor from Fallout and Fallout 2 is also absent.

There is also an identically-named black version of this armor, with the same appearance as Van Graff combat armor. There is no matching helmet for the black version. This version is worn solely by members of the Van Graff crime syndicate, and is painted black for "brand recognition purposes." A total of 9 suits of black combat armor exist in the game: 5 worn by the Van Graff thugs at the Silver Rush, 1 worn by Simon, 1 worn by Jean-Baptiste Cutting, and 2 on the bodies of dead Van Graff thugs at the site of Durable Dunn's Sacked Caravan wreckage.

VariantsEdit

  • Van Graff combat armor - The Van graffs' standard armor for all of their guards.
  • Combat armor, reinforced - An improved version of combat armor, made out of tougher armor plates and covers more of the wearer's body, most notably the back and upper torso.
  • Combat armor, reinforced mark 2 - An even tougher version of standard combat armor and an improvement of the reinforced combat armor, the armor provides more protection by having an even thicker set of armor and covers most of the torso, the lower legs and a portion of the forearms, all for the same amount of weight.
  • US Army combat armor Lonesome Road (add-on)Gametitle-FNV LR - A greener, military variant with private insignias found in the Divide.

LocationsEdit

NotesEdit

  • Van Graff combat armor can be repaired by regular combat armor but regular combat armor can not be repaired by the black Van Graff combat armor
  • The combat armor found on Van Graff thugs is colored black instead of green, similar to the combat armor used by Rivet City security in Fallout 3.
  • On the female version, the shirt and pants seem to be darker than the male version.
