Before the War the vertibirds were in the prototype stage. The project wasn't finalized until after the War by the Enclave.

This is one of the main quests in Fallout 2:

They will work. Remember that Fallout was released in 1997, and Fallout 2 in 1998.

It's mentioned in Fallout 2 that they had 4 but three were lost and you steal the fourth. :tops:

EDIT: I just noticed that one of the above posts has a link to the quest I was talking about.

I'm amazed that you could never give/sell or get the vertibird plans for either the NCR or Vault City.

It would be neat to see Vertibirds in the hands of the BoS in New Vegas... they already have the models done.

Without Colonel Autumn's accent saying "vertibird" though, it just wouldn't be the same.

It would be cool. But in Fallout 2 Matt mentions that the BoS is running out of manpower. And they definitely need a southern guy to say vertibird.

If the BoS are in New Vegas, hopefully their story is their loss of power and division... and it would be neat to see one faction of the BoS with vertibirds, and the others wonder how they obtained such technology.

Wait, if they weren't finalized until the Enclave, then how come in Operation Anchorage they have working vertiberds?

Retroactive continuity. Bethesda changed it, possibly without even thinking about it. Assuming the Vertibird part of the sim is one of the accurate portions.

I did do a post somewhere speculating on Aircraft in the Fallout Universe... Who has them, what air technology is possible in a post apocolyptic environment easy (and this was built on by several other posters), but I'd be suprised if major powers such as the NCR didnt have some elementary aircraft (even if they are experimental one-offs or even a simple hot air baloon), but nothing in any major number or major strategic use.

Wait, if they weren't finalized until the Enclave, then how come in Operation Anchorage they have working vertiberds?


Operation Anchorage is not a historicalically accurate recreation of the events in Alaska.

Development

Entries found in a terminal in the Outcast Outpost detail the development of the simulation. The entry dated August 15, 2077 describes how General Constantine Chase tested the simulation himself, but claimed it didn't "feel right," and that hardware problems were prevalent. The second entry dated September 6, 2077 tells of how Chase was making elaborate changes to the simulation which the writer of the entry felt were "divorced from reality," and that he was sure that the real Anchorage Reclamation had never happened the way Chase portrayed it. The writer goes on to say that everyone was beginning to think Chase was going insane, but no one confronted him because they feared that the military would take over the project. At the very end, the writer questions why running the simulation was necessary anymore, since "any tactical data was mined months ago".

In particular, the VB-02 Vertibirds were present in the simulation in full operational capacity when in fact they wouldn't even reach prototype stage until much later. There is also doubt over the plausibility of Chimeras as shown in the simulation, since any other source material on the Reclamation makes no mention of it.

Their is a computer log of the staff of the company that ran the O:A simulation, complaing about inaccuracy implemented by the general chase (i think that was his name)

Yeah, prototypes were in development at the time the bombs fell... it would make sense that General Chase thought they were cool and forced them into the sim program.

I'm pretty sure that's us fixing Bethesda's mistakes though, I doubt that computer log was really in reference to that.

Bethesda may have known that they somehow made a mistake somewhere with O:A (it was their first DLC, after all) and may have included that second log as a sort of catch-all to ensure there were no long-term ramifications of their mistakes.
