NCR trooper armor
NCR trooper armor
Combat armor sprite representing the NCR armor in Fallout 2
NCR armor is the official uniform of the New California Republic Army.
In the year 2281, the official uniform of the New California Republic Army consists of a khaki tunic with bellowed hip pockets and khaki breeches, worn with a desert facewrap and hardened leather pauldrons, black leather fingerless gloves, arm wraps, brown boots and khaki puttees. A metal breastplate with the emblem of the NCR painted on is worn in combat, attached to two leather straps on the pauldrons.
It provides a level of protection comparable with reinforced leather armor (DT of 10), quite low for its weight of 26 pounds, however with the Jury Rigging perk it is possible to use them to fix much more advanced and expensive medium armors such as combat armor and both reinforced variants.
- NCR trooper armor is worn by NCR troopers. All the other outfits are a variant of this.
- NCR bandoleer armor has a pocketed bandoleer wrapped around the torso to carry extra ammunition and other supplies.
- NCR face wrap armor has the facewrap pulled over the user's face. This shields the user's face from the elements, especially with the goggles helmet on.
- NCR mantle armor is distinguished by a camouflaged cloth wrapped around the user's shoulder. It is often seen being worn by officers but is also worn by NCO's (Sergeants and Corporals).
- NCR Military Police armor is worn by NCR's MP officers. It is identical in appearance to the NCR trooper fatigues, except that this variant has a small black and white "MP" armband on each arm. It's helmet is black with MP written across it.
- NCR injured trooper armor is worn by injured NCR troopers. This armor is marked as unplayable and can't be taken from the troopers corpse.
- NCR trooper fatigues are identical in appearance to the NCR Trooper Armor, except for the chest armor. While all other NCR armors of this type have 10 DT and are Medium-class, this armor has 2 DT and is classified as light armor.
