The metal armor is a piece of armor in Fallout: New Vegas.


Metal armor serves as a very heavy armor. It provides much more protection than a suit of leather armor, but is more ramshackle than combat armor and is weaker than power armor. It can be very useful for someone who has Jury Rigging since it can be used to repair most types of power armor. The metal helmet is similar in shape to a motorcycle helmet. It provides moderate protection for a piece of headgear and has a stronger variant, the metal helmet, reinforced.
