Los Angeles, or better known as just L.A., is the second largest city in the United States and the most populous city in the U.S. state of California. The city was destroyed during the War of 1996.

First Lady Marilyn Whitmore was in the city and barely survived the destruction. Jasmine Dubrow and her son Dylan helped in finding survivors, including the First Lady, and led them to El Toro.

Following the attack, the VMFA-314 Black Knights launched a disastrous assault on the City Destroyer over the ruins of Los Angeles.

Behind the ScenesEdit

  • The digital particle fire elements designed to match pyrotechnician Joseph Viskocil's miniature explosions was used for the wide shot of the expanding blast ring in Los Angeles.
  • The ruins of Los Angeles were shot at the Kaiser Steel mill in Fontana, California, the location used for the post-apocalyptic terrain at the beginning of Terminator 2 (1991). Clay Pinney and his practical effects team spent two weeks dressing the location with propane fires, broken fire hydrants and burnt-out cars prior to filming. They also created a two-hundred-foot wall of smoke to hide the undamaged buildings in the background.
