    How long before they show up ?
    From the screenshots they are wearing PA and carrying big guns...all I have is leather armor and little tiny cap guns.
    Is the encounter avoidable till later ?
    I want to fix the reactor but if I do that I can't interface with the computer again to piss off the Enclave.
    And I like killing Enclave.
    I usually hit Gecko and Vault city up after the Den for the car parts...then go south then towards New Reno etc.
    I could get the car..make a mad dash for SF get PA and weapons then head back...but that just kills the game for me.
    So can I avoid the encounter till later ?

    To give you a more in depth answer (as I don't think "yes" is correct or even that helpful since you asked more than one question) :

    You usually see them within a few days of the Gecko discussion. I think if your outdoorsman is high enough you can opt out, then I'm not 100% on that. Even then, you don't meet them again if you opt out as it's a one time deal.

    I think there's some difference between vanilla game and RP, but I cannot confirm that. Long time since I've played any of those...

    No, you can't. It's a forced encounter, which happens in the time of 60 frames after you travel in the world map.
    If you trigger the encounter in low level and early equipment, your only chance for survival is to talk your way out (requires Speech > 85%, or a Luck check if you have Lenny in your party)
    In the newest RP the hidden super sledge in the map is removed, and you can't steal their weapons. Unless you cheat or meta-gaming your way to get PA and high tier weapons, it's nearly a suicide trying to take them out in normal playthrough.

    There's no Enclave assault encounter in vanilla game, only in RP.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone.

    I was able to talk my way through with Speech.
