The Commonwealth

Appearances

The Cherry Bomb appears in Fallout 4.

Behind the scenes

  • The Cherry Bomb was created late into development, as designers wanted to include a "sleek sports car" before the end of the project.[Non-game 1]
  • The vehicle resembles the Firebird 3, a concept car created in 1959.[Non-game 2]
  • The Cherry Bomb was added to Forza Motorsport 6 as part of a crossover promotion. It is called Chryslus Rocket 69, in reference to the classic Rocket 69 song, and was accompanied by a trailer styled after contemporary vehicle advertisements. Anyone who played or bought either Forza Motorsport 6 or Fallout 4 on Xbox One through May 2016 would have received a promotional code that would unlock the 2069 Chryslus Rocket 69 pack. It was subsequently released for purchase as a regular Forza DLC, either bundled or standalone. According to the promotional material, the vehicle was powered by a 950 horsepower atomic V8 engine, it was capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 miles per hour (96 km/h) in 0.3 seconds, and reaching top speeds "once reserved for Army Space Troopers". The flexi-glass dome is rated not only as shatter-proof, but also capable of stopping small arms fire, making it safe "from the golden fields of Oklahoma to the streets of downtown Boston".[Non-game 3]
