Check my user page for more hints.--dotz 22:05, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

Moved the page, since the US Army is just a part of the Armed Forces, not synonymous with them. Ausir 22:12, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Haha, oops. Thanks for the correction. Schizmoooo 22:15, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
Advice needed. This article is more general than Enclave Armed Forces (Enclave Armed Forces are United States Armed Forces after the war). And there is Military ranks article covering both pre-war and post-war period. So should it be pasted here?--dotz 21:52, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

  • elite light combat troops - HERMES armor mention
  • mechanized cavalry (mechanized divisions) - Bible mention?

  • items: psycho, Field Medic First Aid Kit, Paramedics Bag, FO3 items. --dotz 19:32, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

Naval Research Institute - Rivet City

Because the NRI founded Rivet City, and was a military faction, isn't it worth adding Rivet City as a descendant of the U.S. Armed Forces? YuriKaslov-M1911 small.jpg Yuri Kaslov 15:07, September 26, 2010 (UTC)

Bit of a bump here. YuriKaslov-M1911 small.jpg Yuri Kaslov 21:30, October 22, 2010 (UTC)

Referance in earlyer Fallout?

Wasn't there a ref. somewhere to the navy being sent to the encl.oil rig?--Ant2242 02:08, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

Where did the...

solders picture come from?--Ant2242 00:52, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

Uh, GECK? Tagaziel 09:59, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

Where would the

Orbital weapons platforms fit in? The Ballistic Defence Division or the Airforce?--Ant2242 23:43, 29 May 2012 (UTC)


Should we add the ranking system for the US military branches?--Ant2242 (talk) 08:23, 10 July 2013 (UTC)

We can simply mention that the rank system does not differ from the one in our reality. Have you found differences? Tagaziel (talk) 12:12, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

So far there is little mention of it. I just thought that it should be mentioned because there is enough referenced ranked personel both USA and Enclave to at least mention the ranking system.--Ant2242 (talk) 13:43, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

New military program...for Fallout at least.

U.S military's Close Assault Weapon System program - Should we add this someplace?

{26801}{}{The CAWS, short for Close Assault Weapons System, shotgun is a useful tool for close-range combat. The bullpup layout gives the weapon a short, easily handleable, length while still retaining enough barrel length for its high velocity shells. Min ST: 6.}

PRO ITEM.MSG (Fallout 2)

But where is this from:

The Heckler & Koch CAWS (H&K CAWS) is a prototype automatic shotgun—designed as a combat shotgun—co-produced by Heckler & Koch and Winchester/Olin during the 1980s. It was Heckler & Koch's entry in to the U.S military's Close Assault Weapon System program.

— On its page as "Fallout 2 description."

In both real life and Fallout universe.--Ant2242 (talk) 16:30, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

Fixed. No idea who added that bit. Tagaziel (talk) 13:46, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

The Draft

We know that a draft occurred at least as early as 2075, although I am at a loss to where it should be added. <ref>[[Discarded ArcJet worklog]]</ref> Any ideas?--Ant2242 (talk) 03:06, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

Hardened radio relay system

It appears that the relay towers (at least in the Commonwealth) are a part of some sort of hardened radio relay network. Notice to WRVR.--Ant2242 (talk) 21:19, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
