Currently, Aaron Kimball uses it to travel to his various speeches, meet and greets, and other appointments. It is well armored and closely guarded when upon the ground. The aircraft has a high Damage Threshold. The aircraft suffers frequent flight control problems, however, and constantly needs its flight computer fine-tuned by a skilled engineer.
Painted on the side of Bear Force One is the NCR bear logo. The vertibird is the same model as the ones seen elsewhere but possesses a unique paint job, including golden NCR logos. Shooting or aiming at the vertibird will result in being attacked by nearby NCR forces.
- If one activates the vertibird before the engineer gets near it, the text is "the Presidential Vertibird."
- It is the only aircraft in the game that can be shot down by the anti-aircraft gun atop Hoover Dam.
Behind the scenesEdit
"Bear Force One" is a reference to the U.S. presidential airplane "Air Force One" and the two-headed bear symbol of the NCR.
