Fort Bragg Military Base, USA

Fort Bragg base is the largest military base in the world which is spread across 214,968 acres of land and with the population of 217,003 military personnel. Fort Hood is the home of III Corps, 1st Cavalry Division, 13th Sustainment Command, First Army Division West, 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment, 41st Fires Brigade and many other Forces Command and other units.

The base population of 217,003 includes

4,733 active duty officers

39,262 enlisted active duty members

74,294 family members

89,805 retirees, survivors and family members

8,909 civilian/NAF/other employees.

The base was first announced during WWII to test and train tank destroyers. The post is known as 'The Great Place' because of the quality of standard it maintains. Fort Bragg is the only post in the United States which can support two full armoured divisions.

Edwards Air Force Base

I think it's more likely to be a base like Saudi Arabian National Guard's Kashmalan base in Riyadh... It's 28 miles in length and houses everything on an extreme level.

The SANG are the Kings own private army, not part of the main Saudi Army. While they don't have tanks etc. they have literally thousands of APC's, massive advanced technical training facilities and it's effectively a city unto itself.

The SANG was initially trained by the US military and tech/comms etc. supplied by the British.
