Riga is the capital city of Latvia and where the Nod government was located in their own hideout. After the Global Defense Initiative came to Latvia, they placed Helipads on the country where A-10 ground support planes came to land after the country was recovered.
First Tiberium War[edit | edit source]
After the mission at Parnu, GDI moved down south and chased Nod using Warthog A-10s to capture the country of Latvia. They have captured the city of Riga where the Nod government hiding there fled down south to the city of Jelgava where they established SAM sites in this area to prevent GDI planes from reaching their Helipads. The Prime Minister of Latvia supported GDI forces as the offensive drew down on Lithuania to rid of Nod independence there as the enemy had Belarus, Romania and Germany with Denmark on their heel. After the mission in Jelgava, GDI continued to either get to Poland or go into Belarus and Poland to steal some manufactured rods there.
