Southern Cross was one of GDI's central command centers.

Background[edit | edit source]

Very is known about Southern Cross, other than that it was a major GDI command center established sometime prior to the Firestorm Conflict. Its location was never stated.

History[edit | edit source]

In December 2030[1], an ion storm cut off GDI forces worldwide with the space station Philadelphia, forcing Southern Cross commander General Paul Cortez to assume command of planetside GDI forces. He recalled a GDI Commander from Operation Lazarus to lead the Firestorm Taskforce.[2]
