Taruk is one of the many jungle type world which exist in the galaxy.
This jungle filled with dangerous animals was first used to hide military R&D installations. After the beginning of the war the IPF managed to find them, the bases were all well defended and special corps battalions are deployed and changed every year in order to mantain high level of readiness to counter IPF’s guerilla action.
Large portions of forest around the bases are being burned since the enemy used the trees to hide and attack.
Taruk is and remain a battleground where organized groups of IPF sappers and snipers are fought bravely by UPDF military. Recently Unity Government decided to send ATAB to the planet hoping to regain full control over it.
