Snider's Top is a glacial, mountainous landmass situated on the western coastline of the largest island in Usea's northern gulf. It is located due east of White Valley and southwest of the port of Saint Ark.
In the final days of the 1998 Usean coup d'état, Scarface Squadron was dispatched to Snider's Top to eliminate the fleet of warships that were serving as the coup d'état forces' final line of defense. The ensuing engagement on August 30 was a decisive victory for the Usean Allied Forces, and resulted in the destruction of numerous rebel warships, advanced bombers, and the Federal Erusea Air Force's Albireo Squadron, which had defected to the rebels' cause. Scarface was ultimately victorious, leading to the success of Operation Bellissima.
During the Lighthouse War , the Federal Erusian Navy would use Snider's Top as a base, deploying Mobile Offshore Platforms to support their efforts to preven the IUN from threathening northern Usea. However, an airstrike conducted by the Long Range Strategic Strike Group would decimate their fleet, allowing IUN forces to mount a counterattack.
