The nuclear shelter is a landmark building in the Tropico 4 Apocalypse DLC. It raises the respect and membership rate of a faction depending on its work mode.

The shape of the shelter door, and the alphanumerical designation on it may be a reference to the iconic vaults of the famous post-apocalyptic Fallout series.
