Area 3 is a space colony that was attacked by Andross's army during the Lylat Wars.
Area 3 is a large space station situated between Sector α and the Asteroid Belt. It's shaped like a large circular ring, with a functioning city inside it.
Built long before the Lylat Wars, Area 3 served as a deep space colony for Corneria. Sometime later, it housed the Gigarilla, a robotic weapon confiscated from Andross prior to his exile. During the Lylat Wars, Caiman, along with a contingent of Androssian units and Pigma Dengar, launches an attack on the colony to retake the Gigarilla. Fortunately, Star Fox arrived to intercept them and prevent the theft of the Gigarilla.
Area 3 shared similarities with Area 6, they both had the same number as the mission (Mission No. 6: Area 6, Mission No. 3: Area 3).
