ZAX 1.0 is the original prototype of the ZAX Supercomputers. It went online in 2054.
Developed by the Vault-Tec Corporation. Initially, a prototype of some of the systems designed to govern the vaults, it is given to the government to help the Department of Energy collect resource data. Within a year, it is taken by the military for plague and tactical research; one version, ZAX 1.2 is constructed for West Tek. By 2077, ZAX 1.0 had served its purpose and was planned to be transferred to a Museum that showed interest in housing ZAX 1.0 in 2078, however, the Great War prevented ZAX from being moved to any museum.
ZAX 1.0 does not appear in any Fallout games, and is only mentioned in the Fallout Bible and Fallout 3.
