The rocket features a hybrid fossil fuel/plasma engine design. The former is used to break free of Earth's gravitational pull, the latter intended to bring the rocket to other planets for mining operations.
- A scale model can be found on the ground floor in the REPCONN headquarters.
- One can be found under the gas station's port in Novac, next to a Z43-521P rocket.
The R77-293A Needlenose rocket appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
- REPCONN Aerospace placard: "This sleek and purple R77-293A "Needlenose" is what happens when you mix fossil and plasma in a rocket and shake it up! The fossil fuels punch this sharp-nosed terror through the sky, and the plasma is used to shoot it through space to planets where REPCONN can mine more fossil fuels, continuing the whole cycle again!"
