The air control tower is a building in Adams Air Force Base in the Fallout 3 add-on Broken Steel.


The tower contains the controls for the mobile loading platform. This platform needs to be lowered in Who Dares Wins to be able to access the mobile base crawler.


A single sentry bot can be encountered on the ground floor, which is a main square room situated around a main staircase. This room is mainly office space scattered with desks, chairs and skeletons. The stairway leads up to the control room that allows you to gain access to the mobile base crawler.

Notable loot

  • A Nuka-Cola Quantum can be found here. As soon as you enter, go right. The Nuka-Cola Quantum is located in the second cubicle, underneath the desk.
  • A sniper rifle can be found here lying on the counter of a mail cubby, located at the southwest corner of the floor.
  • A rare packet of bubblegum can be found below the sniper rifle, in an open container.

Related quests


  • While in the tower, one of the flying Vertibirds may fire a missile through the broken windows. They will fly past the tower first, giving you time to shoot them with a weapon such as the Tesla cannon.


The air control tower only appears in the Fallout 3 add-on Broken Steel.
