--- Airstrip ---

Nod’s strategy focuses mainly on two aspects: speed and decentralization. Nowhere is this fact better demonstrated than with the Brotherhood’s reliance on the C-17 Globemaster III in transporting their vehicular assets. Whereas GDI manufactures their armor in bases on the front lines, Nod vehicles are smuggled from storehouses around the world in the bellies of these giant aircraft. However, with such huge planes, one must ask the question:

Where do you land these darn things?

Apparently, Nod engineers said, “You don’t land them, you land their cargo.” Thus, we have the design of the Nod Airstrip. By utilizing a gentle upward slope, vehicles are dropped like bowling balls out of low-flying C-17s to roll softly to a stop on the pad at the end of the runway. Needless to say, this process tests the mettle of both Nod pilots and air traffic controllers.

Modeled by DamageINC and given landing lights (among other things) by Soviet Deso, Nod commanders should be rolling out their devious vehicles in short order. GDI would be wise to watch the skies.

lol, MCV's will be fun to drop off, since theyre so large. More on that later :)

As for lights, take a close look at the posts lining both sides of the airstrip... yeah, we have that covered :)
