"It's great to be back in Ortara! Home sweet home, baby!"
Quox Armored Battalion soldier[1]

Ortara is a coastal city located on the southwestern side of the Anean continent. It is located nearby the Jamel Desert.[1]

It was renowned for its prosperous textile manufacturing industries which contributed to Emmeria's economic prosperity.[2] The city is also known for having great gelato.[1]


The city resembles a Middle-Eastern town with sand covering a majority of the landscape.


Estovakian occupation

After the loss of cities such as Gracemeria and San Loma in the early stages of the Emmeria-Estovakia War, the majority of the Anean continent was under Estovakian control.[3][4] As the Estovakian military approached the coast, the Emmerian Air Force's 303rd Airborne Air Control Squadron, which was usually stationed at Ortara, was transferred to Khesed Island.[5] Eventually, Estovakia took control of the city as well.

After the Emmerian forces on Khesed managed to recapture Mount Marcello, plans were immediately devised to retake the mainland.[1]
