Southern Command was based in Bristol, England.
On July, 13th 1951 at 2:24 PM, about 11 hours after Northern Command was destroyed, Southern Command was attacked by the Chimera. Tango Company under the command of Captain Mitchell, Major Stephen Cartwright, and Nathan Hale defended the base while providing the base's personnel the time to evacuate to Cardiff via VTOL. The defenders were the last people to escape before Southern Command was utterly destroyed by approaching Goliaths.
Southern Command was the last British command post to be destroyed, and at least 50% of the base's personnel were killed.
- On the map depicting Southern Command, you can clearly see the name of Long Ashton just south of the base, as well the Bristol suburb of Clifton to the right. This makes Southern Command 3,500 metres east of Bristol in Snake's Well wood.
- On Myresistance.net's forum, Southern Command is the General Discussion zone where the description is: "Take a well-earned rest from war and discuss the board, music, movies, life and whatever else!". The zone is modeled after the main function (R&R) of what Southern Command was originally used for in the game.
