Icon cut content.pngThe following is based on Fallout 3 cut content and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Outcast recon armor and its matching helmet are a light variant of the T-45 power armor, cut from Fallout 3.


The following section is transcluded from Recon armor. To modify, please edit the source page.

The T-45 power armor model is designed for a single operator and is patterned closely after the human silhouette. It consists of three layers. The first is a black body suit worn by the operator for comfort, insulation, and protection from injuries that may be sustained during the armor's operation. The second layer of the armor is part of the power armor proper. These two are commonly referred to as recon armor when worn together. They form a full body suit made of thick, processed fabric with integrated metal plating that serves as a platform for attaching the armor and on-board hardware.[1] The recon armor is, in effect, the underlying chassis of the T-45 power armor model. Its attachment points and power cell plug at the nape of the neck are essential for the operation of the full T-45 power armor, as the third layer consists of the armor, the fusion power cell, as well as the hydraulics and servomotors that allow the operator to carry heavy ordnance into combat and bear the weight of the armor.[2][3]

This armor was replaced by the universal power armor frame and matching jumpsuit. However due to the ongoing War it was never completely decommissioned, repurposed as a recon variant of the standard T-45 power armor, without the external armor plating, but increased mobility.[4]


A slightly beefier variant of the standard recon armor found in the game. Cut, meaning all Outcasts will wear full powered armor when met.



  1. Owyn Lyons: "Scribe Bowditch, I trust you are well. I'm here for your progress report on the modified Recon Armor."
    Bowditch: "Ah... you're a bit early today, sir. Regardless, I'm happy to report that the development of the Mark II Recon Armor unit is proceeding as planned."
    Owyn Lyons: "I'm pleased to hear that. Do you anticipate any setbacks? Last month's progress was, well... let's call it "underwhelming.""
    Bowditch: "There may be a slight delay in the enhancement of the ambulatory gyroscope. A few of the parts I need were lost in the recent... inventory reduction."
    Owyn Lyons: "You'll make do, Bowditch. You always do."
    Bowditch: "Thank you, sir. I appreciate it."

  4. Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p. 200: "Which Power Armor will you choose?
    The full suit of Power Armor has more damage absorption, but less mobility.
    The Recon Power Armor is light armor, with extra speed and agility."
