Southern Cross Command Center
Military base and command HQ
Southern Cross is one of GDI's central command centers.
During the Second Tiberium War, it was commanded by General Paul Cortez. A month after the end of the war, Cortez assumed authority over GDI forces following the loss of contact with the Philadelphia, and the base was used as a temporary global command center. Furthermore, it contained at least one operational EVA unit which coordinated global communications while the Philadelphia was out of contact with Earth due to severe ion storms. While the Southern Cross had never been attacked during the Firestorm Crisis, Cortez had its forces participate against CABAL's insurrection. Southern Cross handed its central command capability back to the Philadelphia once contact was re-established
