Officially known as Planet 97104/a, but dubbed Nu-Earth because of it's striking similarity to Earth, this was a vital area in the war between the Southers and the Norts that raged across the galaxy.

Before the war, Nu-Earth was a paradise, but within years of the beginning of the conflict the planet was a blasted, scorched rock. Despite this, the planet was still as valuable to both sides due to it's proximity to a black hole that would give rapid access to the rest of the galaxy.

Biological & nuclear strikes had rendered Nu-Earth uninhabitable, and troopers on the planet's surface could only survive with the aid of complex & bulky breathing equipment.
The Genetic Infantry were engineered to fight & survive without the need for this heavy gear in the poisoned atmosphere of Nu-Earth.
