The Yangtze River (Chinese:揚子江) is the longest river in Asia, and was the location of the Yangtze Campaign.


Before the Great War, the United States Marine Corps led a campaign here, with the outcome of the mission unknown.[1] A memorial to the fallen of the campaign was constructed in the Mojave desert.[2]

A Chinese internment camp at the Big Mountain Research and Development Center was named after this river.

Yangtze was also the name of a class of Chinese nuclear stealth submarines.


The Yangtze River is mentioned in Fallout 2, Fallout: New Vegas, its Official Game Guide and add-on Old World Blues, and Fallout 4.

    Dick Richardson: "{197}{prs24}{There was a great war long before we were born. Our gallant soldiers fought from the Yukon to the Yangtze.}"
    The Chosen One: "{198}{}{Yeah, I knew about that part. Go on.}"
    Dick Richardson: "{216}{prs32}{We were winning, too. And then those damn Reds launched everything they had. We barely got our birds up.}"
    The Chosen One: "{217}{}{Doesn't seem as though it helped us much.}"
    Dick Richardson: "{218}{prs33}{Well, no it didn't. But at least it knocked the damn Red menace back into the stone age.}"
    The Chosen One: "{219}{}{And us with it.}"
  2. Fallout: New Vegas Official Game Guide Collector's Edition p.383: "[4.07] Yangtze Memorial
    Most locals can't rightly remember the exact reason for the large cross on the hill northeast of Goodsprings [4.05], but it honors the fallen of the Yangtze Campaign after the Chinese invaded Alaska in 2066, and the United States fought back, deploying to the Chinese mainland in a long and bloody war that ended with the 2077 holocaust. There's a Hollowed-Out Rock here, and a warning of Deathclaws in the Quarry Junction [4.04] to the northeast. Northwest is an Abandoned Shack [4.S05] that's well worth checking out. Use the memorial as a landmark."
