Vault 76 is one of the Vaults constructed by the Vault-Tec Corporation. It is located in West Virginia (mislabeled as a DC area Vault in certain Vault-Tec records) and was designated as the Official Vault of the Tricentennial by Vault-Tec, under the tagline "Vault-Tec Salutes America".
Background[edit | edit source]
Vault 76 was one of the seventeen control Vaults within the Vault experiment. It was designed to house five hundred people for a duration of twenty years, at which point the residents would be released and used as a control group.
Construction began in February of 2065 and ended in October of 2069. The Vault had LightLife Geo-Thermal for its primary power supply, and General Atomics Nuclear Power as a secondary power supply. Its computer control system was Brainpower 4. At some point during construction, Giles Wolstencroft, Vault-Tec's Assistant Chief Executive Officer, was abducted by extra terrestrials while inspecting the site.
In 2076, the Vault was debuted by Vault-Tec in celebration of America's Tercentenary. Following the successful sealing of the Vault, it remained close for 25 years - over the projected duration - and opened in 2102.
