The winterized medic armor and the matching winterized medic helmet are pieces of armor in the Fallout 3 add-on Mothership Zeta.


Main article: Combat armor

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[1] to the cutting-edge riot gears that came into use prior to the Great War.[2]

The first modern type of combat armor developed by the United States Army[1] to the cutting-edge riot gears that came into use prior to the Great War.[3] consisted of individual armored plates manufactured from synthetic fibers[4] attached to standard load-carrying equipment of the infantryman. The individual components included a combat helmet issued with matching goggles in hazardous environs, front and back ballistic plates, and a pair of axillary protectors. Additional forearm protectors were issued to frontline troops.[5] The lower body was protected by a pair of thigh plates, worn together with a groin and kidney protector. The shins, knees, and feet were covered by frontal plates worn over standard combat boots.[6]

The armor was typically worn in conjunction with standard Army fatigues[7] or specialized uniforms designed for it, with various solid color camouflage patterns (including Arctic white, coyote brown, and olive drab). Rank indicators were typically painted on the axillary protectors,[8] with the Army insignia and identification numbers printed on the back plate.[9][6]


It is nearly identical to winterized combat armor, except that the armor is less beat up and dented, has different textured shoulder and shin plates, has a medic symbol appearing on the armor's back and is missing a balaclava and gloves. The armor is 'cleaner' compared to the Wasteland armor, because the medics were taken when their armor was 'new'. It has the same DR, but is less durable and gives +10 to Medicine.





When in the cryo lab with Elliot Tercorien, loot the bodies of his squad. If Elliot dies, his squad will appear as just wastelanders, and the two with winterized medic armor don't appear. This means you can no longer get the winterized medic helmet. Alternatively, you can reverse-pickpocket a stronger set of armor on Tercorien and take his winterized medic armor. Also, if Tercorien dies, you can loot his armor.


  • The only medic present in Operation: Anchorage, Dr. Adami, does not wear any sort of armor at all. This could be because the armor is meant for field medics, rather than for medical workers around camps.
