Recon armor is a piece of armor in .
Fallout: New Vegas
Intended to serve as the under-armor of the
T-45d power armor, the recon armor is a vacuum-sealed asbestos jumpsuit covering the entire body. Attached to it is the interface and mounts for the T-45d power armor. Its purpose is twofold - it allows the user to actually operate the armor and protect soft tissue from moving parts inside the suit and heat. Unlike the under-armor for the T-51b power armor models, this one is also designed to offer limited protection from anti-personnel weapons.
Medium armor. This armor is identical in appearance to the
recon armor available in , though with a higher value. It provides a damage threshold of 17 (Same as Fallout 3 Combat armor, reinforced) as well as a bonus of 5 to Sneak and can be repaired with other suits of recon armor. (Can also be repaired with NCR Trooper Armor or any combat armor with the Jury Rigging perk.) It weighs 20 pounds.
Although this armor is intended to be an "undercoat" for power armor, you cannot wear recon and power armor at the same time.
Although it is named "recon armor" when you check your status, it states "Initiate Armor"
