Armageddon Monitoring Stations

Jump to: navigation, search

There were three Armageddon Monitoring Stations, each named after a hero of the Second War for Armageddon. They were named Yarrick, Dante and Mannheim, but unfortunately they were all destroyed in the early stages of the Third War for Armageddon; Dante first, then Yarrick and Mannheim at the same time. They did, however, give advanced warning of the arrival of the Ork fleets.[1]

They were the most advanced monitoring stations ever produced and were put in orbit beyond the furthest planet to give maximum scanning range. They replaced the out-dated monitoring satellites maintained by Herman von Strab, which were almost useless as Von Strab ignored the information coming from them.[1]
