The Grand Fortress.

The Grand Fortress (Auresian: La Grande Fortezza) is the name given to the heavily-modernized stronghold built atop the Oviera Ridge roughly one kilometer away from the northern and eastern shores of Porto Imperiale. Its sole function is to provide heavy defensive and offensive support to the protection of the city and the entrance to the Hattaro Straits. The ridge, and the Fortress itself, are located in the Brendisi District of the city.

The Fortress, which has been almost entirely rebuilt and both heavily modernized and its structure reinforced since the close of the Pan-Anarian War (PAW), was taken as a trophy by the military of Helreich in its initial invasion of the region in the opening phase of the PAW. The retaking of the fortress saw it severely damaged, which necessitated its almost total demolition and reconstruction.

The Fortress is armed with 115 gun emplacements - twenty 15 inch, twenty 8 inch, and seventy-five 5 inch. Many are built into the structure of the fortress itself, or within its perimeter, while some are built into heavily reinforced towers on the outer perimeter. All of the fortress's five inch guns are capable of targeting ships both in the air and on the water, and have a range of 13 nautical miles (14.9 statute miles). An extensive underground network of armories, connecting tunnels, and a motorized conveyor system have been installed to maximize the effectiveness of the Fortress and its guns. The fortress has its own power plant and water purification system, though heavily secured access points to the city underground exist. It is rumored a secure track of the city tubes connects to an underground train platform.

The Fortress is an Imperial Armed Forces installation, which operates both an Army and Navy contingent. Every five years, command of the complex rotates between an Army brigadier and a Navy commodore. Serving as "Commanding Officer, Grand Fortress" is a rare and highly prized feather in the cap of any qualified officer.
