Alaska Base was located both above and below the ground in the Alaskan wilderness. The surface portion of the base included an air field and was heavily armed with Veritech and Destroid forces.
Below ground, Alaska Base housed a command center designed specifically for the possibility of a doomsday scenario. The command center was placed several kilometers underground to withstand attacks from Reflex weaponry, and contained logistics capable of supporting its inhabitants for an extended period of time in the event of a nuclear winter. Alaska Base's command center was always attended by several military commanders of the United Earth Forces at any given time, most notably by Admiral Donald Hayes.
