Here's a little better description of Inverness, the planet being fought over.
Inverness is a planet strikingly similar to Earth in terms of topography, natural resources and weather. It has no native sentient life forms, and is therefore ideal for empires looking to expand. Although combat is taking place in bursts across the planet, the primary battlefield is on the continent named Jutelend. This is the largest continent on the planet, with a variety of terrains, from mountains to valley to rivers to deserts. Right now, Jutelend is in the midst of winter, and it snows frequently there. The Middie base is located in the midst of a deeply wooded region known as Kenmare. It is a region dotted with mountains, as the Urali range runs through its center. On the other side of the mountains lays a massive plains area, where most of the combat takes place.
As for the base, it is a relatively large complex for such a small squad as the Shadows. It has 15 bedrooms, which are all state of the art, with windows looking out at the mountain range. There is a massive hangar, where the mechs are kept, and where maintenance and weapon changes are performed. There is a large war room with screen for each member of the team to view the plans for the attack. Tobak's chair has full interface with the Middie network, allowing him to access any schematic, plan, or strategy at will. There is also a mess hall with a replicator that can make the finest meals at the push of a button. A kitchen attached to the mess is often used by Tobak to cook for his soldiers.
There are large regions around the base where pilots can wander along rough trails, and hike into the mountains. Two hundred miles to the west, the central power generator for the base is located.
