|Liberation class Asteroid Base|
Avon was one of the first Pirate bases founded in Gallia. No one knows exactly when this occured or who the people were that were daring enough to inhabit an asteroid in the central part of Vincennes Nebula, but most likely it were the forerunners of the Gallic Brigands. The asteroid was hollowed by tunnels without much planning or control, and towards 700 A.G.S. the facility literally started to fall apart. With many parts of the asteroid depressurized, most of the pirates chose to leave.
The Maquis eventually repressurised and repaired some parts of the base, and use it to strike at the heart of the Gallic Capitol. These days, Avon is still far from being a reliable facility, with dozens of unexplored tunnels and pathways. Pressurization problems still emerge from time to time. However, the base does fulfil most housing and security needs of the numerous Maquis who live there. Security is tight in and around Avon, since the Maquis know that if the Gallic Royal Navy would learn the location of the base, it would not be able to withstand an attack for long.
