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.

— Chief Hanlon describes the NCR heavy troopers

The NCR salvaged power armor is a piece of armor in Fallout: New Vegas.


NCR salvaged power armor is T-45d power armor recovered by the NCR during the NCR-Brotherhood War. NCR technicians have restored it to working order by replacing the back-mounted cylinders with a custom air conditioning module and stripping out the joint servomotors, allowing it to be used by soldiers without the need of Power Armor Training, even though "it feels like you're carrying a brahmin on your back". For identification, it has a yellow NCR Bear logo painted on its chest plate and red stripes on the arms.

The main differences from regular T-45d power armor are its white coloration, the lack of the original shoulder pauldrons, removal of the kneepads, and parts missing from the legs.


Salvaged power armor does not require the Power Armor Training perk and does not have the usual +2 Strength or 10% radiation resistance bonuses of normal T-45d power armor. It retains the -2 Agility effect however, and also has a slightly reduced weight and Damage Threshold.

In terms of effectiveness, NCR salvaged power armor is bested in weight-to-DT ratio alone by the far lighter combat armor, reinforced mark 2, which has the same DT rating, weighs 20 pounds less, and also lacks any sort of Agility penalty. The only advantage it provides is that it possesses an item HP of 1000 while no version of combat armor has HP higher than 650.

NCR salvaged power armor is the most protective NCR disguise the player can obtain for most of the game, equaled only by the NCR Ranger combat armor, which is also 20 pounds lighter than the salvaged power armor.



  • If the Brotherhood of Steel allies with the NCR in the ending, the NCR hands over all suits of salvaged power armor to the Brotherhood in return for the Brotherhood's help in patrolling the I-15 and Highway 95.
  • As this is no longer powered armor, the pulse gun or any other EMP weapons do not work against this armor.
  • It should be noted that if the player character is shot while wearing this armor, blood will come out, just like any other non-power armor, unlike when power armor is worn, which makes a "clank" noise when shot at.
  • Unlike NCR Veteran Rangers, NCR heavy troopers do not respawn after being killed, so there is a limit to the number of suits of NCR salvaged power armor you can obtain from them.
