An asteroid base established in U.C. 0072 by the Principality of Zeon and the lunar manufacturing cartel. Located in the asteroid belt that lies between Mars and Jupiter, this facility is originally used for resource mining, and during the One Year War it also serves as a way-station for the vessels of the Jupiter Fleet. After the end of the One Year War, Axis becomes a place of refuge for renegade Principality soldiers fleeing the Earth sphere. Half the remaining Principality fleet eventually makes its way to Axis, along with ten thousand soldiers and twenty thousand family members and dependents. These renegades spend years struggling to create a livable home in the far reaches of the asteroid belt, all the while planning for their eventual return. On February 6, U.C. 0086, the exiles finally begin their journey home. Axis, now fitted with a set of thermonuclear pulse thrusters, leaves the asteroid belt and sets off on a twenty-month voyage back to the Earth sphere, where it will dramatically change the balance of power in the Gryps Conflict...
