Tencher Air Base - Caprica

Tencher Air Base

Basic Information


Tencher was a large and relatively new air base constructed on the western shore of Caprica’s main continent, about seventy-five kilometers south of the coastal town of Qualai. Home to around ten thousand military personnel, Tencher’s mission was three-fold: first, it operated one of the largest Officer Candidate Schools in the Colonies; second, it provided basic and intermediate flight certification to aspiring pilots; and third, it served as home to several Viper and Raptor squadrons deployed to the Caprica planetary garrison. The once-sterling reputation of those squadrons underwent a precipitous decline in the last decade of their existence: word on the street held that veterans perceived to have lost a step would be assigned to Tencher for a soft landing before being mustered out of the Fleet. Tencher became home, in later years, to a Viper aerobatics squadron previously housed at Cafferty. The Banshees performed at various military airshows before the program was shut down roughly six months prior to Warday, in light of funding cuts.
