During the First Tiberium War, Kane wanted to take control of Niger and to this end he required Mauritania, so as to prevent GDI's A-10 Warthogs from destroying the forces invading Niger. To this end, the Nod Commander established anti-air defenses at Tidjikdja and destroyed the GDI airbase nearby. Nod statistics on the country identified it as an Islamic republic, 48% corruptible, home to 2,059,000 citizens and a laughable military, with a military resistance value of 28%.
