Alternative solutions to maintanence for aircraft, Airpads are equipped with supplies like with airfields used by major factions across the world, but using less space launches VTOL aircraft for duty.
Airpads were also buildings where old aircraft such as the Eurocopter Tiger and WS-61 Commando used to be deployed from here, since the introduction of the Boxer and Kangaroo VTOLs into service replacing these classic helicopters, they were in placed in reserves and deployed for homeland security but refitted with better equipment.
Small but Good
All-thou it is smaller than a conventional airfield, Airpads are usually unseen due to being underground facilities which have a hatch on top allowing the aircraft to lift off after they have been built, a set if control towers to allow the operators at the Airpad to communicate to all aircraft in flight.
Watch towers allow soldiers and workers to keep an eye out for enemy units approaching, easily hidden on the battlefield blending in with various types of scenery, Airpads can easily evade enemy forces if it isn't spotted by enemy radar or scouts.

Behind the Scenes
- The Airpad is inspired by the Helipad from the first two Command & Conquer Titles.
- It will produce aircraft and it'll possibly hold one aircraft, but if not it'll have the similar capabilities as airfields producing helicopters.
