Malsoun is a small world not far from the Imperial base of Delfii. Malsoun
was originally colonized and turned into a major Imperial military outpost
by Moff Uhlmann mere weeks after the conquest of Delfii.
Malsoun was originally designated to be a prison world, until Imperial
General Ridnik pointed out that Malsoun's various terrians and enviroments
would make it an ideal choice for an Army academy and training facility.
Moff Uhlmann agreed, but elected never to construct the academy. After the
Battle of Bilbringi and the death of Grand Admiral Thrawn, Uhlmann knew that
he would not be getting any newly trained soldiers anytime soon and went
ahead and built the academy years after the initial idea.
Today Malsoun is one of the largest Imperial Army academies ever. The
Imperial Malsoun Army Academy turns out several hundred thousand trained
army troopers a year. After it's first year, the academy was expanded,
utilizing several prefabricated garisons and modifying them into both
training facilities for navy troopers and even stormtroopers.
The main facility is located on a small island in the middle of the planet's
only ocean. Several large transports shuttle trainees to various smaller
outposts (the old prefabricated garisons) all over the planet to expose the
troopers to various conditions. There is even a single submarine transport
that carries seatroopers down to a submerged training facility a few
kilometers below the surface.
The main facility is protected by an extremely strong planetary shield that
covers then entire island. The smaller outposts each have anti-orbital
missile batteries. Any ground assault would be suicidal considering that 99%
of the planet's population are Imperial soldiers or soldiers in training.
