Loot type: Military

A control tower, also called air traffic control (ATC), is a military structure that spawns military gear as well as other types of loot in DayZ.

Control towers are fairly large three story structures that are only located at the three airfields; north-west airfield, Balota airstrip and Krasnostav airstrip. They are easily identified by their large glass room on top. Loot can spawn anywhere in the building to include the hallway and roof.

Control towers spawn rare and useful military gear and weapons. These buildings are very high traffic areas with one main set of double doors, and a ladder on the opposite side. The player should take extreme caution when approaching and looting these buildings.
