Planet Details:

Prior to the Fall of the Star League, Tantara was the headquarters world of the Star League Defense Forces LVII Corps (Star League) and 12th Jump Infantry Division. The local population was against having the SLDF forces on world and protests numbering in the thousands of civilians were common.

Tantara's second moon, Kalinda, served as the homeport of the 6th Fleet (SLDF) of the Star League Navy. While there were naval offices on Tantara itself, they were minor. It was not uncommon to have one or more squadrons of warships in system.

Tantara is has five continents. The main one where Mysore is located is Hyland, an equatorial continent. Maille and Weston are on the southern hemisphere, with Weston being the largest land mass on Tantara. The continent to the Northwest of Hyland is Kinton and the one that dominates the North Pole is Zemke. There is an Island complex named the Grippen Islands and four oceans, Osaka, Ozarka, Osage, and Volyana. The continental capitols are Watrous, New Charon, Tehron, Manchester, and Timber Falls, respectively.

[2990] It is strongly suspected that a large number of intact GOL-1H Goliaths, first introduced by Brigadier during the Star League era, were recovered from a subterranean Star League repair depot on Tantara's arctic shelf, Iavarone. Certainly, there is no other way to explain the fact of the 'Mech unit known as Cochraine's Goliaths containing so many of the previously non-existent assault BattleMech.

The Confederated Magistracy has made Tantara a key leg in its Jumpship Command Circuit down what is known as the Indicass Arm, connecting worlds from Indicass to Teng in a resupply chain that can shuffle reinforcements quickly. In support of this, Indicass is dotted with several new small military starports and storage facilities that are supporting that mission. The CMAF also have considered building a recharge station over Tantara Zenith Recharge Point, but strains elsewhere have put those plans on hold.
