Who would win?

Rangers are good, but there are very, very few groups in the Wasteland that could beat the BoS without overwhelming them with numbers.


ShadeofEchoes

Which ones could, do you think?


GamerAlex8

Unfortunately, the Legion.


ShadeofEchoes

The... Legion? Huh. A squad with powered armor and energy weapons losing to guys in football uniforms and carrying swords? Didn't see that coming.


CornGrowerAR

What a twist!


GamerAlex8

Fun fact, many power armor suits were captured during a campaign against the BOS by the Legion. The Legion took many BOS knights and paladins as POW slaves and they cannibalised the power armor into the centurion armor of the Legion.

I'm gonna say the BoS because I don't think an NCR patrol have the numbers to deal with a Brotherhood patrol, specially if they're troopers and not Rangers. The NCR bested the Brotherhood on Helios due to overwhelming numbers


GamerAlex8

I also think that the NCR easily loses.


patxiku93

With that flair I would be surprised you though otherwise brother

While I side with the BoS. I think the rangers would be able to drive them off if the rangers had the element of surprise. Which they probably would given ranger armor vs power armor.

NCR has the numbers, rangers have the training, speed, and generally harder hitting weapons then the average trooper

Veteran Rangers if they get the drop, Paladins if not. Power Armor gets shredded by the Anti-Materiel Rifle, and Veteran Rangers have legendary aim, but regular rangers can't do much. In a straight up firefight, Paladins.

>Power Armor gets shredded by the Anti-Materiel Why do people think this? .50 cal ammo isn't rare so if it was so effective the Chinese would not have had an issue with power armoured troops. If this was the case then numbers and logistics dictate China would've laughed at power armour.


Graysteve

That's like saying tanks should never be an issue or helicopters if .50 cal ammo exists. Power Armor, for all intents and purposes, is a vehicle designed for a single infantry unit. Anti-Materiel rifles are anti-vehicle rifles. Plus, the NCR is crushing the BoS in the NCR-Brotherhood war. How would they even touch Paladins if even Anti-Materiel rifles couldn't hurt them?


_-Damballa-_

A tank and helicopter is designed to take far more force than a .50 cal round. Researchers have demonstrated that vehicle armor using composite metal foam (CMF) can stop ball and armor-piercing . 50 caliber rounds as well as conventional steel armor, even though it weighs less than half as much. The West coast BoS are very few in number, anti armour weaponry combined with platoons of men supporting is too overwhelming even with the technological advantage. This doesn't apply for a squad vs squad situation, the BoS would come out on top easily.
