A UNSC airpad.

The UNSC airpad is a UNSC building in Halo Wars. As its name suggests, it is designed to construct aircraft, such as the Hornet, Hawk, Vulture and EV-44 Nightingale.[1]

Function[edit]

Air superiority can be of vital importance, for example not only for intelligence gathering but also for tactical strikes at your enemy’s weak points. A UNSC Airpad is a surprisingly sophisticated structure that not only houses the maintenance crews required to refit, repair, and rearm Hornets and other UNSC aircraft, it also houses banks of simulation pods to train pilots in everything from the basics to advanced tactical maneuvers.[1] Airpads also support the force commander with sensor feeds and intelligence uplinks which allow for proper battlespace deconfliction, kill chain assignment, and other aerospace management tasks.[2]
