The Tange system is one of the farthest systems on the galactic frontier, and is under the control of the United Outer Colonies. It's roughly 25 light years from the Yugumo Cluster. It's located by traveling through Misato's Passage, and named after the prominent family.
In YE 33, following a UOC-wide invasion by the NMX, the planet was attacked by sizeable NMX space and ground forces. The NMX quickly gained orbital superiority and landed several thousand mecha and infantry on the planet, resulting in widespread confusion and fighting between the UOC defenders and the NMX.

The first planet in the system, this world is a harsh, inhospitable rocky planet with some mining applications but primarily for autonomous systems.
The capital planet of the Tange system, the world is known for its long, cold winters and picturesque landscapes evoking a Yamataian tundra. None the less, it has a rich environment of resources, and large but cold oceans that primarily make for rocky shores. Weather is more temperate around the equator, where Misato city is located. The second moon is a very popular vacation spot.
Filled with dense asteroids from a failed planetary formation (mostly thanks to the gravitational influence of Tange VI) this belt is still being explored, but mining has already begun in some sections.
While the assignment is not very exciting, many prefer to be put at the stopping point between asteroid belts for the sheer beauty below. There is plans in the work for a rescue ship dispatch center here, as well. There are many moons, at least two of which that are being explored for potential colonization.
While less dense than its sister belt, these asteroids haven't been explored as fully. Preliminary results indicate mining would be useful, or another defensive station.
