General Tullius' Armor is a unique piece of Heavy Armor worn by General Tullius. It consists of only one part - the cuirass. It shares its base armor rating with the Steel Armor Cuirass.


It can be obtained at the conclusion of Battle for Solitude, if the Stormcloaks questline is followed in the Civil War. It can also be stolen from General Tullius' coffin in the Solitude Catacombs after the quest. Otherwise, except for Console Commands, it can never be obtained.

If you join the Empire, it may be obtained by reverse pickpocketing an armor of higher value onto him, followed by pickpocketing the armor itself. Also, you can use the level 100 Pickpocket perk Perfect Touch to pickpocket the armor. Either of these methods are very difficult but possible.


General Tullius' Armor can be upgraded at a workbench with a Steel Ingot, though it does not benefit from any Smithing perks. This means the armor cannot be improved past flawless quality without boosting the Smithing skill over 100. This can be achieved by using enchanted items and/or blacksmithing potions to Fortify Smithing.


The cuirass is primarily bronze, gold, and crimson. Emblazoned across the chest is the Imperial insignia along with some additional gold flourishes.

It shares almost the same appearance as the Penitus Oculatus Armor, except for the gold coloring and decorative flourishes.


  • Apart from the Imperial dragon emblem on the chest, it is almost identical to the armor that would have been worn by high ranking Roman officers between the first century BC and third century AD.
  • It is the lightest Heavy Armor Cuirass in the game.
  • Despite being almost identical in design to the Penitus Oculatus Armor, it is heavy armor, however the Penitus Oculatus Armor is light armor.
