The Pentagon is a landmark in the Eastern Shenandoah territory. Ground was first broken for construction in 1941, and actual work on the building commenced in 1943. The Pentagon served as the headquarters of the U.S. Department of Defense from the 1950s onward, and was one of the largest office buildings in the world.
On January 20, 2013, during the 57th Presidential Inauguration Day ceremonies, a low-yield nuclear weapon was detonated within Washington, D.C. The blast was strong enough to reach Arlington, Virginia, and the Pentagon was destroyed. Its remains can be seen within the ruins of the D.C. area in-game.
Behind the ScenesEdit
- Approximately 23,000 military and civilian employees, along with some 3,000 non-defense support personnel, work in The Pentagon. Given how abruptly and completely the building was destroyed in the nuclear blast on January 20, 2013, it can be safely assumed that everyone in the building was killed.
