An experimental weapons research station, Zwei Base was a skunk works--an area wherein the command officer--Captain Meridius Soldato--was given free reign an support to construct a new starfighter for the UEF to better serve their forces in new mission roles following the Rigellian War.

Ultimately, Zwei Base would be known for two things--the theft of a number of Soldato's prototype starfighters by Kienan Ademetria, and the successful development of the Centaur Starfighter.

Following the adoption of the Centaur contract, Soldato would move his base of operations from Zwei Base to Olympus' new Elysium Shipyard complex. Zwei Base would be decommissioned and demolished two years later.
