For more background information about the T-51b and its appearances in other games, see T-51b power armor.
For an overview of various models of power armor in the Fallout series of games, see Power armor.

The T-51b powered infantry armor is designed with the latest passive defense features for both civilian and military disturbances. The back-mounted TX-28 MicroFusion Pack generates 60,000 Watts to power the HiFlo hydraulic systems built into the frame of the suit.

Power armor specs

T-51b powered Infantry armor or power armor represented the peak of armored infantry technology before the Great War. Now, only the most technologically advanced factions with ties to the pre-Great War American military or federal government, such as the Brotherhood of Steel or the Enclave, have access to this type of power armor.


Main article: T-51b power armor

The T-51b was developed in the laboratories of the West Tek Research Facility. At the end of the Anchorage Reclamation in January 2077, the armor had become standard issue for American soldiers in the Army's Mechanized Cavalry Regiments.




Map Location Description
Lost Hills

1. Reward from Talus for rescuing an initiate
2. Repair a damaged suit on level three.
3. Boxes in locked storeroom. (2 suits)

Note: After the first lockpick attempt all nearby Brotherhood members turn hostile. Senior Paladins and Senior Scribes do not come out the storeroom, so the second attempt is impossible (when closing in on the door, battle starts).

  • The initiate is in the Old Town section of the Hub. He will be located in the building directly below the entry point. He can be freed by killing his guards.
  • Will require a Repair check to complete the suit.

Fallout 2Edit

Note: It seems that right after you pick up the power armor in Mariposa Military Base at any player level, shops in San Francisco will one up their inventory and start selling Gauss weapons, expanded lock pick and electronic lock pick [verification needed]. Strangely enough, picking up the more powerful advanced power armor in Navarro doesn't have this effect.
