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 via console commands, it can never be obtained.


General Tullius' Armor can be upgraded at a workbench with a steel ingot, though it does not benefit from any Smithing perks. This means that 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 dark red. Emblazoned across the chest is the Imperial insignia, along with some additional gold flourishes. An array of gold medallions adorn the belt and two more act as a clasp on the front. A small scarlet cape/hood is present on the back, but serves for aesthetic purposes.

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 BCE and third century CE.
  • 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.
  • A darker variant of this armor is worn by General Falx Carius in the Dragonborn expansion, but cannot be obtained by legitimate means.
  • Though the cuirass itself is Heavy Armor, General Tullius equips Imperial Light Boots and Bracers instead of the heavy variants. This is likely to maintain a color scheme, however.
