Vault 36 was an experiment vault. Its experiment was to fill the vault with inventors, engineers, and assembly workers, to see if they could create new machines and inventions. The vault opened in 2132 and the vault dwellers found shelter at the Corvega Main Assembly Plant. Here they made a base, and became the Motorist gang. This gang doesn't attack USM officials out of fear of war but does attack anyone else including members of the chosen.
