    I'm torn between the classic Enclave APA and the new Outcast PA with the red coloring.

    I like the ones in Tactics best... I have a thing for super-mega-shoulderpads.

    I have dubbed the armor on the far right "Tard Armor".

    You mean the piggy one? :P

    I like the armour in Tactics, but it's not here, so I would go with the Enclave armour from FO2.

    i always thought the telsar armour really stupid. i know the lil things on the back where to take away the force of energy rounds but what if one of those got knocked out then your running around with extra weight and no extra protection might aswell stick with the standard power armour

    T-51b of course, even if it doesn't look exact in Fallout 3.

    nice to see the "original" armors make the best scores :mrgreen:

    I have to agree that thing looks absolutely ugly (from my personal oppinion) but what is worse that I dont see any way it fitts Fallout afterall.

    Starting with Tactics all power armors suck.

    The one in Tactics is even worse than those in Fallout 3 with those idiotic anime horns... well except the one to the far right, which I don't know what it is nor do I want to know.

    Call it dumb looking, but in the post apocalypse I would be pimping out my armor with cow skulls and random pieces of rusted metal. Throw in the replica of the tribal helmet from Fallout 2 (great mod) and you have a sweet suit.

    From that picture I like Hellfire Power Armour (the name is pretty retarded ;)) together with Enclave Tesla/Power Armour.

    As for the Power Armour from Fallout: in game is looking utter shitty (I never use it), I got the same problem with Advanced Power Armour. Although I love close up on the helmet(s) :D

    Anyway, PA from this reel is the best for me :)

    The original T-51b. No doubt about it.

    Most of the others look utterly ridiculous and are horribly out of tune with the retro 50's futuristic setting of the original game.

    Just saying, that's all. :roll:

    T 51b for the win, too bad Bethesda gimped out all the power armor, its supposed to make a human a walking tank that is why the US was beating the Chinese. mobility and tanks rolled into one = slaughter of communist forces. but then the nukes flew and everything sucked.

    The original Power Armour - T-51b.

    Got a more "tin-man" feel to it.

    For all old FO1/2 I do like Regular power armor over the advanced, it just looks cleaner on the character model and less shoulder heavy.

    For FO3 I gotta say, I prefer Outcast armor over the T-51b, it just doesn't look right to me. I always thought powered armor should look mechanical, not just the helmet, and bent sheet metal for the armor. I still don't understand why they made Tesla a set of "Enclave" armor.

    T-51b, there's nothing quite like it. it perfectly translates the feel of the universe (even if not everything makes sense)

    The T-51b definitely, because of the valve on the back.
