Main Accesses: The main accesses of site-DE13 are located in the west, north and east of the site and are secured by gatehouses with barriers and steel gate grids. Entry without permission is not permitted and is prevented in accordance with Armed Forces specifications.

  • Guard Post Staff: Guard posts are always staffed with 3 guards each equipped with an HK SFP9, pepper spray, taser pistols and telescopic baton. In addition, two HK MP5N submachine guns are available to each guard team. In the event of external intrusion, additional personnel and, if necessary, military vehicles will be requested from inside the site.

Main Area: The main area within the site is occupied by several buildings, the runway and large wooded areas. Structures located directly adjacent to the runway to the south are used to house vehicles and soldiers and are shared in part by the German Air Force. However, it has no access to some hangars and accommodations because they house equipment and personnel of various Foundation MTFs and the RTF DE13-ℜ "Raubvögel" (i.e. Birds of Prey). To the north of the site, a wooded area houses the site's administrative buildings and administration. Also located here is an inaugurated Air Force delegation, which has command over the air forces stationed here. To the east of the site is an additional hangar, with a freight elevator leading down to the research and containment area. The entire site is surrounded by a live wire mesh fence. This perimeter area, as well as the site itself, is constantly patrolled and controlled by RTF DE13-ℜ due to the presence of outside personnel.

Barracks and Infirmary: Both facilities are subdivided according to personnel affiliation, with the Foundation occupying the larger portion. Each Foundation barrack has weapons lockers containing all the weapons the Bundeswehr stores in air bases.

  • Staff Quarters: Site-DE13 personnel, including Air Force personnel, are housed in buildings protected from the outside by 50-cm-thick reinforced concrete walls. Due to the proximity to the city of Jensen, no recreational facilities exist here as in other locations.

  • Hangars: The Foundation hangars are extended downward to accommodate all Foundation aircraft. Required aircraft and helicopters are transported by elevator to the first floor of the hangar for takeoff. Underneath these underground storage areas, there is also an underground maglev station that connects Site-DE13 with Site-DE3, DE5 and Strefa-5 of the Polish branch. For secrecy reasons, the Air Force does not have access to these premises, though the Foundation and German Air Forces share the same tower.
  • Power Plant: Site DE13 draws its power from the local power grid, however the containment area has a nuclear reactor stored underground that can be connected to the rest of the site in case of power outages.
  • Laboratories, Administration, and Offices: Site-DE13's laboratories are adequately equipped to perform the most common physics and chemistry experiments within them. In addition, Site-DE13 has an observatory in the northeast of the site to monitor flying anomalies in the Central European region and to analyze them during experiments. It exchanges information with similar facilities of other Foundation branches in the surrounding states. The administration is housed in a bunker below the building, which has several emergency exits.

  • Containment Facilities: The containment facility is located 10 m below ground and can be accessed via an elevator and a large lifting platform inside the eastern hangar. Adjacent to this is a security airlock that verifies the identity of the person entering and tests them for any anomalous interference, as the entry control to the site itself is rather weak due to the situation. In the event of an attack, the guardroom is located next door, which is always manned by at least ten RTF soldiers and has access to automatic weapons. In addition, other armed security forces patrol the entire containment area. This facility is spread over several floors and is only capable of housing anomalies classified as Safe or Euclid due to the presence of outside personnel at the site. Due to the nature of most of the anomalies housed here, there are not very many active security measures against breakouts, as the vast majority of the contained objects are too large to break out by any means other than the main access, assuming it is not already held up by the numerous steel bulkheads that close in the event of a containment breach. Most containment chambers are usually quite spacious due to the demands of their contents and can be buried in an emergency, as can the access routes to the cells. The top basement also houses an engineering office, which is responsible for maintaining the objects and equipment and, in some cases, for researching the anomalies.

Additional Information

With the German reunification on October 3, 1990, and the subsequent demobilization of the NVA, the Foundation made efforts to secure one of the GDR's air bases, as the fleet of military aircraft in existence at that time was by then considered inadequate by the Foundation as a whole. As a result, tensions arose with the government of the newly founded Federal Republic, which wanted to use the Holzdorf air base to secure air sovereignty over the new territories. The government pointed out that the Foundation could wait for the withdrawal of the 16th Air Army of the Soviet Air Forces in order to secure the Sperenberg military airfield 30 km to the north that had thus become available. The Foundation, which did not want to get involved in such a bet because of the political situation at the time, insisted on its claim. Helmut Kohl personally finally reached a compromise with the O4 Council that allowed the Foundation to convert Fliegerhorst Holzdorf to Site-DE13 on the condition that the German Air Force would be allowed to continue using the site without significant restrictions, while the Foundation would at the same time assume all costs for maintaining the military airfield's infrastructure. The compromise originally called for the Foundation, instead of maintaining the airfield, to support the German Air Force in the event of war, but this was rejected by the O4 Council under the doctrine of noninterference in governmental affairs without anomalous background, resulting in the current arrangement. The Foundation agreed and, for secrecy, intends to mix amnestics into the food of the Air Force personnel in the event of anomalous events at the airfield to erase memories of said events.

During the site investigation, a bunker facility was found under the eastern outlying hangar, which was not shown on the site construction plans. Inside, numerous flying machines were found that could be lifted into the hangar for takeoff using the lift platform that had already been installed. All of the aircraft in the building possessed anomalous characteristics, but most of them were only material-related. The facility was subsequently taken over by the Foundation and upgraded. To build the facility's nuclear reactor, the reactor pressure vessel from the unfinished Stendal nuclear power plant was obtained through contacts at the Treuhandanstalt.

In 2011, Research Team 25 found out that the bunker facility had been a Division XXV facility where new types of military aircraft and helicopters were stored, tested, and sent on missions. The blueprints found in the process showed that there was a section inside that had never been found by the Foundation before. Analyses concluded that the entrances to said section had been concreted over. Echo sounder surveys yielded inconclusive results, but indicate several objects within the cut-off area that consistently change position within the premises. By decision of the site administration, the section was left sealed, at least until better means become available to the Foundation to determine what is stored within.
