This armor was inspired primarily by stories of G.I.s in Vietnam lining their armored personnel carriers with flak jackets to protect against mines. Bomb suits used for Explosive Ordnance Disposal were another influence, which inspired my choice of bonus effect for this outfit. Despite its appearance, this outfit does not count as power armor and therefore doesn't require training to use.
The armor uses the T-51b Power Armor as a base. I removed the shoulder pauldrons, then added the cuirass from the NCR Trooper Armor. I cloned the back of the armor and flipped it upside down to create a “skirt” to protect the abdomen and copied the chest and shrunk it slightly to make a neck protector. Lastly, I added the pouches from the Leather Armor, flipped around to the front to act as either mag pouches or tool pouches.
