Fort Enyo was rebuilt on Ares continent following the orbital bombardment and two sieges of the original Fort Enyo during the Invasion of Strata. The orbital bombardment destroyed the surface facilities of the base, the first siege by the invaders at the beginning of their invasion did heavy damage as did the second siege by the defenders to retake the base during the end of the invasion. The new base was built on the ruins of the old and is the centre of the Strata Military Academy and includes the military science campus of the Strata Institute of Science and main military spaceport of Strata. The two garrison bases, Fort Bia and Fort Nyx are secondary training grounds for the Strata Military Academy.
The centre of the base is a rocky hill, which is now used as the primary headquarters and communications centre. This was formerly the fortified backup centre before the invasion, with the primary facility being wiped out by the opening orbital bombardment. The new backup is located deeper underground under the current primary centre. The outcrop, often called ‘The Rock’, is fortified and defended by gun emplacements and bunkers. Unfortunately it has proven difficult to construct subterranean battlemech hangers in the immediate area.
Surrounding ‘The Rock’ are surface facilities comprising the military science campus of the Strata Institute of Science and the Strata Military Academy grounds for first year cadets. Emergency Shelters are located throughout the base to protect personnel in the event of a future orbital bombardment or similar threat to the un-fortified surface facilities.
The fieldworks of the base focus upon concealed garrison battlemech hangers, vehicle hangers and infantry barracks for ground defence; and concealed anti-aircraft LRM batteries to guard against incoming dropships.
