This base lies on the surface of Reach, the UNSC stronghold planet, somewhere in the Aszod region, close to the ship breaking facility that saw the 2 remaining NOBLE team Spartans defending the Pillar of Autumn during the Fall of Reach.
The frigate dry dock.
Dry dock gate open.
Without the frigate.
The main base. This has everything required for a military base to function. Approximately 550 people are stationed here.
Bottom: Storage, armory, vehicle depot.
Top: Research tower.
Supply pad, complete with supply dropship. To the left, the golden dome is a biosphere.
Up close on the dropship.
The power station. This uses various methods of generating electricity for the base.
Smart bomb launcher. The bombs are launched by a rocket, then the device seperates just behind the fins, sending the primary bomb to its target. The rocket can then either just crash, or be used as a weapon itself.
Airfield, home to 1 Longsword interceptor.
50mm AA gun. Capable of 360* rotation and can fire 90* upwards.
Air traffic control tower.
The main control building, with radar equipment on top.
A size comaprison.
This base was originally just going to be the dry dock for the frigate, but then from that evolved the idea of a whole base. The result is what you can see before you (obviously). This is somewhat different for me, as I don't usually build buildings (as you know), but overall, I'm pretty happy. And for those who are undoubtedly going to complain that this doesn't actually exist in the Halo universe... I know. It's completely non-canon, fictitious within the Halo universe. Whatever. Anyway, please share your thoughts.
