Vulture (pronounced vul-toor-ah, according to the General's News Network) is a military airfield in Just Cause 3.


Along with Griphon, it's one of the two largest airforce bases in Medici.

As with most bases in Insula Striate, this base is very heavily guarded. The airbase is built on the side of a large cliff in the province of Maestrale and is extremely large. It is littered with SAM launchers (9 to be precise), so the player must always be careful when attempting to Liberate this place in a plane or a helicopter.

It has three major runways and multiple hangars. One of these hangars always contains a couple of U-7 Dravecs. There's a constant traffic of Dravecs and Thunderhawks departing and landing on all three air runways.

In-game map description: "The military airport of Vulture stores a massive compliment of jets and bombers in its underground hangars. The famous Hirundine Squadron, which has protected Medici's skies for 100 years, calls Vulture home."

After liberation, it is possible to encounter a rebel wielding a Prizrak U4. This weapon is not commonly seen wielded by Rebellion soldiers.


Rewards (after completion)

  • U-7 Dravec becomes available at Rebel drop

    • Aeroporto Tour


 All Platforms   For whatever odd reason, U-7 Dravecs (and sometimes CS7 Thunderhawks) landing here will flip over at the end of the right most runway. Very few don't flip over.

This could be a development error resulting from inaccurate landing paths.

{{Console unknown}} Stealing a parked jet with a rebel inside can rarely cause it to blow up.

 Xbox One   (NOTICE: This can only be seen if Mech Land Assault or Bavarium Sea Heist has been downloaded.) Black Hand Pavouk U-15s will spawn here along with Medici Military variants after liberation. Geschwind V3000s also spawn here, almost always spawning at least one of each of the mentioned vehicles in all variants.

 All Platforms   Occasionally, U-7 Dravecs and CS7 Thunderhawk land on Vulture's runways and taxi into the hangar. Once in there, they disappear unexpectedly, but their engine noises and other audio can still be heard.



  • By alphabetical order, this is the last settlement in Medici.
  • The in-game description suggests this airport was constructed at least in 1913. Although the layout of the airport may have changed over time, it is unrealistic that a military would be able to construct an air force base in a mountain as far back as 1915, when air forces had just figured out how to properly shoot a gun from a plane.
