In the 2020s, increasing unrest in Kazakhstan led to concerns that the facility could be taken over by terrorist groups. In response, a large American and another equally large Chinese army base was constructed in the vicinity to protect Baikonur, and a large number of troops were stationed within the facility itself. All this protection could not save Baikonur though; its launch pads and its rockets from falling into the hands of the Global Liberation Army, who took the facility after a bloody battle. The GLA loaded the rockets with biochemical warheads, using them to attack US and Chinese bases overseas as a threat.
In response the United States conducted a sustained offensive against the GLA in Kazakhstan. After the fall of their main base in Akmola, the GLA garrison at Baikonur still holding out was ordered to strike back. A biochemical missile was launched at a US Naval base in Northern Europe, and the GLA prepared for a second launch. The train transporting the second missile was hijacked en route by the Americans, who then ambushed the GLA in their own base. Finally, a MOAB air strike destroyed the launch facility.
