Easter Basin Naval Station
The Easter Basin Naval Station is a military base located in the Easter Basin district of San Fierro, San Andreas. Entering the base or flying over it will give the player an automatic five-star wanted level.
The base consists of a Submarine Pen and an amphibious assault craft, or VTOL carrier. Stealing vehicles within the base is not advised, as the wanted level gained will most likely result in the destruction of the stolen vehicle.
The aircraft carrier houses a Hydra parked on its deck. This carrier is invaded, and a Hydra stolen, in the mission Vertical Bird, a mission given by Mike Toreno to protagonist Carl Johnson. However, the carrier does not feature any military personnel other than in that particular mission. Also, the Hydra will not always appear on the deck of the carrier.
The carrier also has SAM sites, which will fire at the player, until after the completion of the Vertical Bird mission. The SAM site closest to the Hydra is also one of the 50 Snapshots in San Fierro. However, to take the picture, one does not need to be on the carrier.
