Adams Air Force Base is a heavily fortified Enclave installation in Maryland. After Raven Rock was destroyed in 2277, the air force base became the Enclave's main base of operations on the Eastern Seaboard. Connected via an underground line to the Capitol and the White House, it provided transportation for the highest offices of the nation. It wasn't until the late 2200s that the Enclave claimed the base, using what remained to establish operations around their mobile base crawler. The Enclave started several research projects at the base, including the development of a Duraframe Eyebot and Hellfire power armor. The Lone Wanderer was sent to the base by the Brotherhood of Steel with orders to destroy the facility.
