The Ballistic Defense Division was a pre-war division of the Commonwealth Defense Administration responsible for protecting the United States with ICBMs.


The Ballistic Defense Division is mentioned only in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Lonesome Road.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • The Ballistic Defense Division's real-life equivalent is either United States Strategic Command, formerly Strategic Air Command, or Global Strike Command, one of USSTRATCOM's subordinate units, which have command and control over the US Air Force's 400+ intercontinental ballistic missiles.
  • General Martin Retslaf, commander of the silos located in the areas of Ashton and Hopeville, is specified as having been an officer in the U.S. Army, implying that the Ballistic Defense Division was an Army unit, rather than Air Force like most real world I.C.B.M. installations.
