|Albert Camus class Station|
|Gallic Royal Navy|
Issoudun station serves as the off-world headquarters for the Royal Navy in Berry. It was built by the Navy's own construction department in 595 A.G.S., shortly after the construction of the nearby Fourchambault Shipyard was completed. Issoudun has always housed some of the crucial strategic planning facilities responsible for planning the Sirius invasion. While many of those plans had to be revised after the events of the Second Gallic War, the strategy teams onboard Issoudin still gather and process large amounts of tactical and recon information collected in Sirius space. The station also has fighter docks from where Navy patrols are dispatched to patrol Dauphine and Lyonnais, systems with a relatively high pirate. One of their main tasks is patrolling the area around Fourchambault, the most important shipyard of the Navy, which is currently operating at its highest possible capacity to provide new ships and spare parts for the Sirius invasion. Securing the shipyard to ward off any potential attackers, in particular the Council and the Maquis, is crucial for the success of military operations in Sirius.
Interestingly, the station is located exactly in the navigation map center of the Berry system. Commonly the navigation map would center around the primary star of the system, or their gravitational average point, but a malfunction in the mapping systems of the early surveyors caused that coordinate to be incorrect. As all systems were programmed with those coordinates, and reprogramming every one of them would be a costly exercise, the flaw was never corrected. Later, Issoudun was built in the central point of the system, "right inside the sun", as the station's elder settlers would sometimes say.
