To get on base, here's what you do. Go to Ammu-Nation and get the Heavy body armor. Next, jack an SUV or van. Go to the custom shop and get the thick off road tires, get 100% armor on the vehicle and upgrade the engine and suspension.
Do this and you'll have a fighting chance against the gun fire. You can also use this tactic to steal the tank and go on a base rampage. However, you'll never get off base, as they'll break out everything on you.
I also tried to fly a plane over the base and parachute down after flying very low. Needless to say, it didn't work. However, the armored Range Rover worked just great. When your tires get shot out, driving gets hard.
You'll likely not make it on the first try, but it's fun anyway.
