Background[edit | edit source]
Located on a well defended plateau in a rural region of Maryland, it is one of the primary military bases for GDI aircraft, housing large numbers of A-15 Orcas and V-35 Ox transports. A garrison of ground vehicles and infantry were commissioned to protect the airbase from ground assaults. The base's air control tower provides key coordination for GDI aircraft throughout the whole Eastern Seaboard.
Storyline summary[edit | edit source]
Andrews AFB fell under attack from a Nod special forces unit in the opening stages of the Third Tiberium War, when numerous Shadow Teams infiltrated the perimeter while militants and Raider Buggies provided distraction by attacking the front entrance to the base. The base eventually fell, after losing most of its parked aircraft, crew and air traffic control tower. As a result, GDI temporarily had no air support to counter Nod's offensive. GDI later on took back the Blue Zones and all airfields in the region.
