|Wedel Mining Facility|
|Bergen class Station|
Wedel is a Unioner base in Hamburg. Originally a Kruger mining facility, it was abandoned when resources in the Alsterfeld became too scarce to mine in 631 A.S., and lay abandoned for several decades. In the wake of their revolt, the Alster Unioners repopulated the base and partially restored it in 676 A.S., and started launching raids at Altona and Alster from it.
Wedel is a dangerous station. Many sections are still decompressed, and the Unioners seem in no hurry to repair them. The station is used as a waystation for smugglers heading into Liberty with Blood Diamonds and Artifacts. The Unioners skirt a dangerous road in dealing with both the Corsairs and Hessians to obtain these, but they and their Liberty Rogue partners benefit considerably from the trade.
