The internment truck is an unmarked location in Fallout 3.

It can be found on a highway east from SatCom Array NW-07c and north-west of the abandoned car fort.


According to the internment orders inside the truck, private contractors were hired by the United States Marine Corps in order to arrest Chinese-Americans suspected of espionage against the United States and deliver them to specially designated prison camps. This particular truck never made it to its destination, as it jackknifed on the highway, with its occupants soon killed by the falling bombs.[1]


A dead contractor is just outside the steps of the truck, with the remains of arrested Chinese Americans still inside the truck.

The truck contains some minor loot, including a skill book, purified water, two first aid boxes, two ammunition boxes, and an N99 10mm pistol near the dead contractor outside.

Notable loot


The internment truck appears only in Fallout 3.

Inside are the skeletal remains of Chinese Americans; learn their names by reading the Holotape inside the truck. The container also has Purified Water, some Chems, two First Aid Boxes, and Pugilism Illustrated."
