Most guarded location over San Andreas, this place is very interesting. You won't find this base on your map in-game, it's hidden! The only way to find it is to remember it's location. It's on the west side of the map, hover your pointer on it in-game and look for 'Fort Zancudo'.
There's a special map that shows Fort Zancudo, you will not find this map in-game.
Aircrafts in Fort Zancudo
Fort Zancudo got a lot of vehicles a lot of players would like to have in their hands, though it isn't easy to get them. Some vehicles are so secret that you may not even know they exist! There are 3 aircrafts you might wish to know about, that are found in the Airbase.
Buzzard Attack Helicopter
The Buzzard is an attack helicopter, which got a Rocket Launcher and a Vulcan Minigun hanged on each wing - making this helicopter a deadly vehicle. You may find only 3 Buzzards at Fort Zancudo, 1 at the closed hangar next to the opened one, and 2 at the hangar next to Fort Zancudo's Tower.
This Jet Fighter is mounted with 2 advanced rockets system and 2 machine guns too, having the same weapons the Buzzard got. This jet got extremely strong engines that let it takeoff within a few seconds after starting the engines. You may find 6 parked LAZERs in Fort Zancudo, and 1 is being used for patrol duties. You may spot a LAZER taking off from the Airbase sometimes, and you might even spot him at Cassidy Creek sometimes.
The Titan seems to be a heavy cargo plane, mounted with 4 engines. This plane seems to be almost impossible to obtain due to the fact you need turn to plane into a proper taking off angle before escaping Fort Zancudo with it - and since it takes 'alot' of time, you are very vulnerable. You may find 2 Titans parked infront of the closed and opened hangars, and 1 Titan is flying around (Most likely at night). There's nothing else special about this plane.

Fort Zancudo Tower
After a deep investigation, I discovered further information about Fort Zancudo! Don't fall to Rockstar's trap, this place worth a shot to look into. Fort Zancudo's Tower seems to be a regular building but it is an enterable building, and not everyone will notice that!
In order to enter the ACT (Air Control Tower) you will need to go to buttom of the tower, and reach that building:
(Overview on the ACT's building)
Once you're there, look for the front door.
(ACT's front door, entrance)
You wouldn't even believe it! Walk through the door, and you will enter the Tower's interior!
The ACT seems to be the main station for Fort Zancudo. You may also find the Training Room which is a class with a lot of posters about weapons. You can learn about the Guards, Duties and Weapons being used in Fort Zancudo!
("Training Room", Class)
Continue forward in the Hall, until you reach the stairs and elevator. You cannot use the elevator, the door would open but it wouldn't let you go up - you'll have to go up in the old way...
Once you reach upstairs you will find a door that leads to the buttom control room.
Guess what you will find there? Except for a view over the airfield and airbase, a Minigun - that's right, they seem to store their weapons in all wrong places.
(Buttom Control Room, Notice the Minigun on the floor)
(View on Fort Zancudo from the Buttom Control Room)
You will find last pair of staircase, that leads to the top control room, where basicly you will be able to get a view of the whole base, and for a bonus - a health kit may be found under the table in the center of the room.

Welcome to Fort Zancudo's Tower, ladies and gentlemen.
As far as some of you may notice, there's a problem! This base is amazing and interesting but the only problem is, it's scripted in very sh*t way ( ). You cannot actually take out guards stealthy, or infiltrate unnoticed and don't have enough approach options except for loud assault or quick theft of vehicles. What I'd wish to see is giving us an option for stealth approach. There is no way to enter the Airbase Premises without raising the alarm. As soon as you enter a specific area within the base the alarm will raise automaticly and 4 wanted points will be issued. The other problem is, that there is no way to take out a guard silently since whenever a guard is getting killed, no matter what or how the alarm will be raised.
It's a big problem because the smart approach really desereves a chance. Let's hope and pray that this problem will be solved as soon as possible by a patch / update. If you have any possibility to grab Rockstar's attention to the business, please do so - It could solve this problem real quick.
