Gen1 USA Airfield Icons

Air fields are large complexes necessary for the United States to maintain and manufacture aircraft used during the War against the GLA.

Game buidling

Each airfield can support up to four fixed wing aircraft and an unlimited amount of helicopters. The American air force is really strong so the best way to not put up with the USAF is to destroy their airfields.
