If you look at this image I think it is fair to note some differences between the armor of the Officer in the foreground and the armor of the rank-and-file troops in the background.

First off the officer has low, slight, narrow and staggered pauldrons which contrast with the elevated, bulky, wide and rounded pauldrons of the troops in the background.

Because the only other example we see of Advanced Power Armor in the game itself (save Frank Horrigan) is on the Navarro talking head, I think it is assumed this is the one and only model of Advanced Power Armor in Fallout 3 and that the in game model is just off. Personally I think the cat from the intro movie is the same cat at Navarro and is wearing specific officer's power armor.

Now here is the in game model next to the blown-up image from the above:



Examining them side by side the following features are indentical:

-Boots
-Gauntlets
-Pauldrons
-Overall proportions

Now look at the original concept art for the Advanced Power Armor:



Note the same exaggerated shoulders as the in-game model as well as the rank-and-file soldiers from the intro.

The only real point of contention here is the head, but if you look at the blow-up of the in-game model you'll notice:

-Similar round, sunken eyes
-Tubes running out of the back of the head
-A protruding nose similar to that in the concept art

The rest is concealed by the top down perspective.

So am I totally insane or does this sound right to anyone else?

Not really. I still talk to her every now and then to keep the association going should things fall through with the girl I'm dating now.

I get what you're saying, but not what you're trying to tell me. What is all of this here to prove?

That Bethesda completely fucked up the Advanced Power Armor in Fallout 3?

Seriously, have you guys seen them in the gameplay demos?

Yes, because to scrutinise a mistake is to render it less aggravating.

At this point (AHAHA), if such efforts must be made (masochists), it is not more logical to search (however vainly) for those things not ruined (almost) beyond recognition by the semen encrusted appendage of Bethesda ?

Have they come out and said that it's "Advanced Power Armor"? Given the closer similarity to the standard T-51b I was just assuming that it was a similar/earlier model that the Brotherhood had dug up a cache of.

Then again, I live in a fantasy world of self-delusion where I think that Bethesda actually thinks about this sort of thing.
