Located on a well defended plateau in a rural region of the East Coast, it is one of the primary military bases for GDI aircraft, housing large numbers of Orca Gunships, Orca Fighters and V-35 Oxen air transports. A garrison of ground vehicles and infantry were commissioned to protect the airbase from ground assaults. The base's air control tower provides key coordination for GDI aircraft throughout the whole Eastern Seaboard.
Andrews AFB fell under attack from a Nod special forces unit in the opening stages of the Third Tiberium War, when numerous Shadow Teams infiltrated the perimeter while militants and Raider Buggies provided distraction by attacking the front entrance to the base. The base eventually fell, after losing most of its parked aircraft, crew and air traffic control tower. As a result GDI temporarily had no air support to counter Nod's offensive. GDI later on took back the Blue Zones and all airfields in the region.
