Vaults are experimental fallout shelter in the United States of America created by Vault-Tec. In A Fallout Tale Cywren Caster was raised in one such vault. Vaults were design to withstand a direct hit from a nuke with a 2% failure rate. The common Public was told they are for humanity's survival and benefit, though Vault-Tec had a more sinister purpose.
True Purpose Edit
Vaults were actually a sadistic way for the US government to perform un-ethical tests on its citizens, they never feared a nuclear war and all Vaults were to be shut on specific dates where tensions were high and the fears of nuclear war had risen.
Known Vaults Edit
Vault 101 Edit
Purpose: The original purpose of the Vault 101 Vault experiment was to stay closed indefinitely, as a study of the human condition, the genetic impact of a small group of individuals breeding through several generations, and the role of the Overseer when a vault never opened, though the limited genetic material would probably result in inbreeding.
