Located on[2] the Mid Rim planet[3] Ord Mantell, Fleet Support Base was established as a part of Fleet Support and was in use by the Galactic Republic's Grand Army for at least three months[2] in 22 BBY.[1] Fleet Support Base contained a cold storage room that had been re-purposed to be a briefing area, as well as accommodations for clone troopers.[2]

After the outbreak of the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems at the First Battle of Geonosis, Fleet Support—and by extension Fleet Support Base—was called upon to receive twenty thousand clone troopers in various states of injury, in addition to another seventy-two thousand combat-ready troops. The base was considered by clone commando RC-1136 to be ill-equipped to support the tens of thousands of clone soldiers it housed in the aftermath of Geonosis.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

Fleet Support Base appeared in the 2004 novel Hard Contact, the first novel in the Republic Commando series written by Karen Traviss.[2]
