|A View of International Airfield|
The International Airfield, known most commonly by its former name, Northwest Airfield (NWAF), is a common area for players to go and acquire military or otherwise high-quality gear. Some players use this to their advantage and wait for unsuspecting players to kill and loot.
General[edit | edit source]
Bandits will often hide on the roofs of the tall buildings to snipe survivors, as well as hide inside the barracks, picking up easy kills on unsuspecting scavengers. Another popular location for snipers to hide, is in the tree line along the western edge of the airstrip near the wall. Because of this, caution is always warranted when approaching any of the buildings in the NWAF. Whenever possible go in a group and have someone watch these potential sniper nests with binoculars or, better yet, a sniper rifle of their own. Trying to go solo at the airfield is not a very good idea.
History[edit | edit source]
There is a short history to the International Airfield: not long after WWII, the small Red Army airport in the Northern province known as South Zagoria was designated for parachute training. It eventually expanded, and gradually evolved into an air base with large military installations and structures. In the border mountains, there are a few former Soviet bases. After Chernarus gained independence from the USSR, the newly created Chernarussian Defence Forces acquired all former Soviet Red Army installations and weapons, including the International Airfield.
Buildings of Interest[edit | edit source]
There are three military camps at the airfield. One is located at the north end of the runway, another is located on the south-west end of the runway, and the third is found in the woods to the south-east of the runway. These tents, especially the bigger ones, are among the best places in the game to find ammunition, a good variety of attachments, and also some nice backpacks because of the high number of tents.
