A Marine helmet is a full-head power armor helmet that forms a full set along with the Marine armor.

Acquisition

As a complicated piece of technology, Marine Helmets can only be made at the Fabrication bench and requires Marine Armor to be researched in order to be constructed. Crafting the helmet requires Plasteel 40 plasteel and Advanced component 1 advanced component.

Alternatively, the helmet can be received as a quest reward, purchased from traders, or found on Raiders.

Analysis

Marine helmets are the middle tier of the three power armored helmets, the other two being the Recon helmet and the Cataphract helmet. As expected, they're also the middle tier in expense and protection as well. While they have the same full head coverage, the marine helmet is roughly equivalent to a Recon Helmet of one quality level above (e.g. a Normal Marine Helmet ~= Good Recon Helmet), or a cataphract helmet one quality levels below.

Like the Recon helmet, the marine helmet is almost totally superior to the non-power armored helmets like the Simple and Flak helmet. It offers superior coverage, covering the face as well as the head, has significantly higher armor ratings for the the same quality, and requires 10 less plasteel to construct, however it does require a relatively rare advanced component instead of two of the more common components.
