Balota Airfield, also known as the South-West Airfield, is a small airfield situated between Balota and Chernogorsk in South Zagoria, Chernarus.

General[ | ]

Balota Airfield is host to a small civilian aeronautics club, making use of a single grass runway for basic take-off and landing operations. The smallest and least developed of all airfields in South Zagoria, Balota Airfield pales in comparison to its larger and more developed civilian counterpart, Krasnostav Airfield. The airfield was most likely used by hobbyists and small commercial flights.

The CDF constructed temporary military fortifications sometime around the start of the outbreak, remnants of which can still be found in the present day in the form of tents and wrecked vehicles; this makes the airfield a tempting stop for survivors travelling west from the Chernogorsk area hoping to acquire some military-grade items.

Trivia[ | ]

  • In 0.63, the airfield was converted to its current civilian configuration. The ATC tower, hangars, and military prison are all removed and replaced by civilian structures, with only a token military presence remaining in the form of tents. The concrete airstrip was also replaced with a dirt and gravel runway, making it more difficult to spot players on the airfield.
  • Prior to 0.49, the old airfield also boasted an additional three barracks on its western side and a large military camp to the south of the airfield; the barracks were replaced with ruined buildings and the large camp was moved to a forest clearing west of Myshkino.
