Southern Cross is assuming GDI global command until the situation can be rectified.
- Paul Cortez

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


Very little 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.


At some point in or after 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]
