Vorpal is a Vertibird assigned to the Prydwen. In one incident during the campaign, the Vertibird lost one of its rotor during its landing approach. However, the Lancer managed to land the aircraft while suffering only minor damage to the armored plating on the starboard thruster. Proctor Ingram performed field repairs on the Vertibird after arriving on another one, Spatha, and was impressed with the Lancer's skill: All that she needed to do was recover the rotor and attach it back to the nacelle, with only minor repairs to the hull at the airport's workshops needed needed to restore it to full functionality.
Behind the scenes
- Vorpal sword is an item from Lewis Carrol's Jabberwocky poem. "Vorpal" is a meaningless word made up for the poem and lacks any concrete definition. The Brotherhood names all of their Vertibirds after various types of swords in history and Vorpal is the only exception.
Vorpal is mentioned in Fallout 4.

Item: Vertibird Gunship "Vorpal"
Vorpal threw a rotor on its last landing, so I hitched a ride with Spatha and headed out to the crash site. Pilot did a hell of a job bringing his bird down in one piece. All I had to do was recover the rotor and set it back in place. There's some minor plating damage on the starboard thruster, but I'll hammer it down when Vorpal gets back to the airport. Was nice to get away from the Prydwen for once. Hopefully I can convince Kells to let me head out with some future patrols."
