Airfields are large complexes necessary for the United States to produce and maintain aircraft used during the War against the GLA.

Game building

Each airfield can support up to four fixed wing aircraft and an unlimited amount of helicopters. It can also repair damaged aircrafts and helicopters. Friendly aircrafts can also use the airfield (if vacant) for rearming and repairs.
