Operation: Anchorage is the first downloadable content (DLC) for Fallout 3 patched to version 1.1.0.x It is available on Xbox Live and Games for Windows Live. The new content is available for 800 points.

This expansion adds four to five hours of war-action stealth gameplay and is presented as an in-game virtual reality simulation set in the fictitious city of Anchorage in Alaska. After downloading the content, it appears as a new quest through a radio broadcast. When entering the simulation, the player is stripped off all equipment and weapons, having to resort to supplies in the environment. It deals with the Brotherhood of Steel outcasts who want to infiltrate one of the Vaults to get rare pre-war technology. But to pass the security system, the infiltrator should break through the virtual training game, set in Anchorage and representing the defense against the Chinese Communist forces. The player assumes the role of the infiltrator.

The add-on expands the game with new weapons, including the Gauss Rifle, and armours, such as the Chinese stealth suit, new perks (Covert Ops) and achievements, an interactive strike team, new enemies, and even the Chimera tank is one of them.
