PEG MTP Economy Airbase
Alarmed by reports that a neighboring SimNation has gained air superiority, the Air Force is offering to build a new air base in your city. But after the recent budget cuts, they have little more than two pennies to rub together. Rest assured, they will have the 200 Simoleans a month they promised to pay your city, but they will have to cut some corners with the base facilities and especially, the operational aircraft.
Rumor has it that the base will be home to a squadron of F1 'Splinter' fighters. Although considered slow and fragile compared to modern fighter jets.... with a nasty tendency to loop and fly straight into the ground... these venerable aircraft are cheap to produce, easy to fix... and require virtually no training to fly. And with petroleum prices continuing to soar... much higher than these planes ever will... the "alternate power source" used by the F1 Splinter can save millions in fuel costs. (Rubber Bands not included)
This Air "Farce" base is a conditional reward that you can easily earn with a city population of just 12,000. It was designed for the MTP but can easily be used in any city or theme. Like most military establishments, it creates some pollution. But not too much considering that the base costs you nothing and will generate §200 a month in income... and also provide civilian jobs to local residents.
And because this base is so poor, there's nothing of value to interest the local crooks. So unlike most military bases, this base will not escalate crime in the area.
The Economy Air Base is conveniently located in your Airport menu.... primarily as this is one of the few menus we haven't yet stuffed to the gills.
