Norfolk Naval Base is a United States Navy base in Virginia.
During the Artemis Global Security crisis in 2021, Artemis launched airstrikes or hit-and-run attacks at major U.S. military bases across the country, including Norfolk Naval Base. The U.S. military launched Operation: Backhand, an amphibious assault on the Virginia Beach to retake the base, but the Artemis ground forces used Norfolk's highly advanced defense system to shoot down advanced stealth aircraft. Captain David Crenshaw of H.A.W.X. squadron used the downloaded ERS to protect himself from AA fire while destroying three command centers to disable Norfolk's defense system. Then, the Marine amphibious assault team began to retake the base. After the Marines have taken control of the base and release the prisoners, they discovered the Artemis special operations team had took at least twelve nuclear warheads from the base's storage depot shortly before the U.S. Navy was able to retake the base.
