The ultimate armor for anyone in the squad exposed to danger (i.e. anyone). Although expensive and has a laundry list of penalties associated with it, it's nevertheless a mandatory suit for endgame missions for pretty much all members of the squad.
I would redo the sprite of the Power Armor to make it more retro. Not that there is anything technically wrong with the sprite, it's a great piece of art. It's just that it is a bit out of place in the Fallout Universe. But bear in mind that we had to design it over a year ago and Interplay approved everything we did. - Tony Oakden, producer of FOT (Freelancer interview)
