Wuhan is the capital of Hubei Province in the People's Republic of China. It is the largest city in Hubei and the most populous city in Central China, with a population of over eleven million, the ninth-most populous Chinese city and one of the nine National Central Cities of China.
Wuhan was targeted for destruction by the aliens during the War of 1996. The People's Liberation Army Air Force was able to intercept the City Destroyer over the city during the July 4th counteroffensive. Though the Chinese destroyed the vessel, the City Destroyer crashed onto Wuhan. Since then, the city has been cordoned from the public, and the Chinese government sent recovery and mining crews to salvage alien technology and materials from the ruined City Destroyer.
