The base did not see any further action until March 31, 2016, when it was retaken by the Steel Gunners Battalion during Operation Free Gracemeria.[1] Later that evening, it was the launching point for Garuda's patrol over the skies of Gracemeria, which turned into an aerial battle as Estovakian cruise missiles and fighters penetrated the airspace.
