8063rd was a pre-War military unit, apparently desperate to receive a part numbered 102-53B, willing to trade a crate of Chateau Lafayette 2055 in return for expediting the order. The whole affair was handled by one Klinger.[1]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Trading wine for parts is a cultural reference to the M*A*S*H episode Out of Gas. The 8063rd is mentioned repeatedly as a related unit of the 4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital, while Klinger is, of course, Maxwell Q. Klinger.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

The 8063rd is mentioned only in Fallout 2.
