Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel (abbreviated as FO:BoS, FOBOS or simply BOS) is an action game developed and produced by Interplay Entertainment for the Xbox and PlayStation 2 game consoles. Released on January 13, 2004, BoS was the fourth video game to be set in the Fallout universe and the first to be made for video game consoles.
The game chronicles the adventures of an initiate of the Brotherhood of Steel. Because of numerous inconsistencies with previous Fallout games, Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel is not considered part of the official Fallout canon, however some of its content could be used as "flavor" material.
The power armor in Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel is not like the power armors used by the Brotherhood of Steel, Enclave or American military forces before the war. It does resemble the T-51b power armor a bit, however. The origin of this armor is probably an attempt by Vault-Tec to produce some valuable combat equipment to help their own Secret Vault to successfully enter the post-apocalyptic world.
Vault-Tec had access to vast knowledges of the government and other companies and probably tried to use all the technologies they could get access to. Having no option to manufacture or buy T-51b power armor in big amounts, they probably started they own research and produced something at least similar to the original.

The Fallout world is not quite our own. It is an alternate reality which diverged from ours at some point after the second World War.
The base concept for the setting is the World of Tomorrow as imagined in the Golden Age of Science Fiction. This means that before the Great War, the Fallout world was more or less what the people of the 1940s and 1950s thought things would be like in 2077.
