Combat armor mk II
Combat armor mk II is a piece of armor in Fallout 2.
Modelled after the human silhouette and designed to provide balanced protection that does not limit mobility on the battlefield, combat armors are a diverse family of personal body armor of varying degrees of sophistication, from the earliest iterations of the armor developed by the United States Army to the cutting-edge riot gears that came into use prior to the Great War.
The Mark II is a new version of Combat armor, designed to replace the Combat armor reinforced, this high tech suit was created as a heavier, more protective armor reserved for use by American shock troops and special forces.
It's superior to the Combat Armor, but generally inferior to Brotherhood Armor. Mark II combat armor has 5 more AC than Brotherhood armor, and an increased resistance to explosive weaponry, but Brotherhood armor has superior resistances and thresholds for everything else.
It cannot be used to gain combat implants.
