I'm Lieutenant Gorobets, First Recon. If you're looking to collect a bounty, you should talk to Major Dhatri.
” — Lt. Gorobets
Lieutenant Gorobets is an NCR Army officer in the 1st Recon stationed at Camp McCarran in 2281.
Descendant from Ukrainian immigrants,
Gorobets is a competent NCR trooper in charge of  1st Recon Alpha Team deployed in the Mojave. He is a tough, charismatic leader and apparently, the only one in the team without a traumatizing experience under his belt.
