Where is the info regarding name and manufacturer coming from? Looking similar to a real-life WW2 plane doesn't mean the name and manufacturer is the same. -- Porter21 (talk) 11:42, July 24, 2010 (UTC)

I agree, but this is not a WWII plane, and Lockreed was not its manufacturer in real life. Lockreed is obviously a pun of the Lockheed plane company. If it's ok, I would suggest renaming this article to "unamed pre-war fighter jet", or something of that nature, and writing a detailed description of it's appearence, since no other canon information is available.

One of the "Museum of Technology" terminals mentions that the fighter jet exhibit has been sponsored by the "Lockreed" company, but there's no mention whether or not the plane is an actual P-80. --GaussRifle 23:26, November 17, 2010 (UTC)

Nah. If it was a p-80, Bethesda could get sued or something. -User:1337 Merc

Well, it may be a T-33 Shhoting Star traning version. We can assume (although unlikely) that the Fallout universe, these machines, constantly upgraded, were in production to 2070's, - The Forgotten Dragon, 6 september 2011, 20:37

Real life policy[edit source]

I understand that this model jet is basically just the F-80, but do we just assume that this is the F-80 or something that looks like the F-80? For example couldn't the "machine guns" instead be lasers or Gauss type cannons?--Ant2242 (talk) 14:53, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

Also I believe that the Jet crash site is of a Navy plane. Blackbox recording--Ant2242 (talk) 15:10, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

Moved the reference. Thanks. Also, it's a carbon-copy so what we write about the F-80 can be used whenever it concerns eg. construction or weapons. The machineguns mimic real-life, so it can be reasonably assumed that they are conventional guns (and they don't look anything like either energy or Gauss weapons).
