This generic fusion engine powered Age of War era Heavy Fire Base was one of several generic bases presented in HexPack Promotion 1 to go with the punchout terrain tiles that came with the promotional DropShip tiles for HexPack: Cities and Roads. According to its Faction Usage entry, it is a generic structure found throughout the Successor States and Periphery. The stated crew is 2 officers, 4 crew, 4 gunners and 6 bay personnell.

The description notes that the same structure can be used in the Succession War era by changing the power supply to "indirect" and placing a power generator building within 30 hexes as per the normal rules. For other eras, Heavy Fire Base (Clan Invasion) and Heavy Fire Base (Jihad) were also provided.

In what may be an error, the structure's height is explicitly stated to be 6 meter (1 level) in the description but the specific tile highlighted to go with the description is marked as a "Level 2 Heavy" building with a gun turret.[1]
