Port Albert: Syrtis Major
and is accessible by a secondary canal running from the capital of the
Mars Crown colony to the base ten miles to the south. The base is the
main headquarters for the Royal Navy Aerial Flotilla, the Royal
Marines, and Army. Extensive billets, training fields and ranges are to
be found here, as well as formidable air and ground defenses.The Port
is also the main landing area for British shipping as well as the
repair,fitting and command for Britain's Martian aerial forces. It is
also rumored to be the area where captured enemy weaponry are
examined before being sent back to earth.
*Note* The idea for Port Albert comes from a well known but,
nonexistent American military base in the southwest. A few
changes were made such as converting a runway into a canal
and another into a Nef landing area.
