T-45 power armor is a power armor set in Fallout 4. It was originally developed and manufactured for the United States Army by American defense contractor West Tek. The T-45 power armor was the first version of power armor to be successfully deployed in battle.
The T-45 lacks the mobility of later power armor models (such as the T-51 power armor) because of its less advanced servo design; as a result it limits the wearer's Agility. The first version of T-45 power armor deployed on the front lines against the Chinese was powered by small energy cells and it burned through them at an alarming rate. Later into the war they were outfitted with a back mounted micro fusion generator, similar to the one used in the T-51 model.
While the T-45 armor is similar in its overall shape to the newer T-51 power armor, it is significantly less advanced than its later counterpart, and uses riveted steel plates instead of plastic composite materials in its construction. The eyeslit for the helmet is made of bulletproof glass to protect the wearer from any projectiles. Various electronic and mechanical subsystems of the armor are exposed on the outside of its casing rather than sealed within as in the T-51, making it far more susceptible to damage. In addition, a specialized body suit is required to be worn underneath the T-45 armored shell in order to facilitate linking the armor's servos to the wearer's own motions and to make the armor more bearable because of its heat dissipation problems.
Developed before the Great War, the T-45 set was one of the first suits of power armor deployed widely by the United States Army, and as such, it remains relatively common more than 200 years later. It first appears in the quest When Freedom Calls, where the Sole Survivor must retrieve a fusion core from the basement of the Museum of Freedom in order to power and utilize an old set of T-45 power armor to defend Preston Garvey and his team from attacking raiders, and later, a deathclaw. A minigun is also taken from a nearby crashed vertibird.

There is only one suit of T-45 power which is not based on the Sole Survivor's level. This is located next to a crashed Vertibird on the Museum of Freedom roof during the quest When Freedom Calls. However, the left arm and right leg components are badly damaged. All other suits which are found in the Commonwealth are leveled.
- The T-45 is the second cheapest to repair, however the low durability of its parts may counterbalance this in the long term, since it will require more frequent repair than other armors.
- The T-45 is the only power armor model to which the Minutemen paint can be applied, granting a bonus to Charisma if all six pieces are painted and worn.
- The T-45 bears some similarities to the more superior T-60 power armor.
- The 3D model of T-45 helmet has been reused from Fallout 3, with only minor modifications.
