Xian-85 fighter was a Chinese fighter, employed by the People's Liberation Army Air Force during the conflict known as the Sino-American War. Virtual recreations of the fighters were used as targets in the virtual reality simulations used to train American pilots at the Nellis Air Force Base.
The fighters are mentioned by Pete, who states he killed a grand total of over 500 of these fighters in the course of his training sessions. As the Courier cannot enter the VR pods, it is not possible to see the fighter.
