CWD

What Specifically Does "CWD" mean? "Chemical Weapons Division", "Chemical Warfare Department", "Chemical Weapons Department" "Chemical Warfare Division"? I just don't want to make assumptions on an abbreviation.--Ant2242 (talk) 02:41, 7 May 2019 (UTC)

CW without a doubt stands for Chemical Weapons, the Chemical Corps was originally called the Chemical Weapons Service, so I think the CWD is the Fallout version of that branch that never shifted purposes to defending against chemical weapons but got upscaled to an entire department/division of the military of producing chemical weapons.

Do we have anything specific on the full name. It's not that I disagree with you. It's Just that I don't want the speculation.--Ant2242 (talk) 04:45, 7 May 2019 (UTC)
Braxton is established to work on chemical weapons and was doing so in 76. The D in CWD is the only thing to speculate on (logically you wouldn't name another part of your department a department, so Division is more than likely). I'm fine with making a page called CWD that then offers a speculative answer to what the abbreviation means. Devsatatin' Dave(ZIP ZAP RAP) 05:27, 7 May 2019 (UTC)

We can always go descriptive, using lowercase "chemical warfare division" and noting that the formal name of the unit is unknown. Tagaziel (talk) 05:38, 7 May 2019 (UTC)

Should we make the page "CWD" then make all the variable pages redirects to it until we know for sure?--Ant2242 (talk) 05:50, 7 May 2019 (UTC)
Using abbreviations is bad practice. Especially since we won't know for sure, because Nuka-World is gone and released. Tagaziel (talk) 09:51, 7 May 2019 (UTC)
Nuka-World? I thought that it was only on the "Dyer Chemicals terminals" page?--Ant2242 (talk) 22:55, 7 May 2019 (UTC)
Project Cobalt is a chemical weapons program; 76 is just keeping in line with Braxton's established MO. Devsatatin' Dave(ZIP ZAP RAP) 23:04, 7 May 2019 (UTC)
I don't see any "CWD" on any of the pages that reference Project Cobalt.--Ant2242 (talk) 03:37, 8 May 2019 (UTC)

Yeah, it's on Dyer Chemical. Keeping it as Chemical weapons division, lowercase, allows us to neatly resolve the problem, using a descriptive term without making a definitive ruling as to what the D stands for. It's plainly Chemical Weapons Something. Tagaziel (talk) 06:02, 8 May 2019 (UTC)

Before your stated "warfare" soo.... sure. No problem.--Ant2242 (talk) 08:47, 8 May 2019 (UTC)
We are also assuming that "C" is for "Chemical".--Ant2242 (talk) 10:10, 8 May 2019 (UTC)
