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!”— Description on the plaque.
The R77-293A Needlenose rocket is a REPCONN Aerospace rocket, representing a hybrid fossil fuel/plasma engine design. The former is used to break free of Earth's gravitational pull, the latter to bring the rocket to other planets for mining operations.
- A scale model can be found on the first (main) floor in the REPCONN headquarters.
- One can be found under the gas station's port in Novac, next to a Z43-521P rocket.
A scale model of the rocket, as well as a plaque describing it, appear in Fallout: New Vegas.
