Vault - 241 is one of the Vault seires shelters developed by Vault-Tec in the northern region of the Saltoma Flats. It's foundations were laid within the manufacturing district of Metracon. It is located east of the Corvega car-factory and north of Tashuma Electronics. It currently serves as the chapter headquarters of the Metracon Brotherhood of Steel.
Construction and Purpose
The construction of the Vault began in 2280 after receiving funding from several local companies. It was completed in November 2291, a year behind schedule.
The purpose of this Vault was to ensure that some knowledge of construction techniques were preserved for future generations. It was built upon an automated factory designed and constructed deep within the earth to ensure that even if the manufacturing district was lost the Vault's inhabitants would be able to construct a settlement from the ruins. It is also one of the first privately funded Vaults to be constructed and as such retains a majority of the systems intended for government run Vaults. It's maximum capacity was originally slated to be around 50,000 however expansion by it's inhabitants has been performed by the activation of the Vault's contingent of mining drones.
In the year 2320 the Vault was opened to recover several Brotherhood of Steel scouts that had been attacked by several of the more dangerous forms of wildlife. From this point onward a Chapter was established within a previously unused section of the Vault. This opened trade routes from which the Vault could apply it's trade whilst recovering new materials to use in construction and research.
Elder Simmons is the current leader of the local chapter and works with the Vaults' overseer to ensure peaceful co-existance. Several of the more isolationist chapters have condoned these actions. However High command has given no offical orders to correct their operation standards as it is seen to be in the best intrest to remain in contact with the inhabitants of Vault - 241.
