What did Bethesda think when they designed their vision of the Brotherhood of Steel armor? The whole thing looks almost like a parody, all the proportions are completely off and instead of being menacing the "face" of the helmet has that retarded look about it. Worst of all however, Beth didn't really get the purpose of Fallout's combat armor. It is supposed to be a sealed off, completely air tight, self-contained system that protects the wearer from almost all toxic outside influences like radiation, contaminated air, gas and biological threats. In Fallout 3, the BoS armor looks like it was made from random peaces of metal that are attached individually to the wearer and hold together by straps and strings, barely fitting to each other - more like a medieval knight's armor than a super advanced, high precision peace of technology it originally was meant to be.
