Virgo II Lunar Lander in the Museum of Technology.

Valiant 11 was the name of the Virgo II Moon landing mission's lunar lander. It was used in the first manned lunar landing mission, and made contact with the lunar surface on July 16, 1969. The crew of this United States Space Agency spacecraft consisted of Captain Richard Wade, Captain Mark Garris, and Captain Michael Hagen. These American astronauts became the first humans to walk on a celestial body other than Earth. On November 14, 1969, the Virgo III Lander Valiant 12 also landed on the Moon.

A replica of the lander was on display in the Museum of Technology in Washington, DC at the time of the Great War in 2077.

Notes

The Virgo II mission is the Fallout world's counterpart to the real world's Apollo 11. The date given for the Virgo II landing is the launch date for Apollo 11, four days before the latter landed on the Moon.

The craft itself greatly resembles the LK lunar lander of the real-world's ultimately unsuccessful Soviet lunar landing program.
