Mos Espa Base was the 33rd base of the Rebel Legion, created on July 30, 2009. The base was named after the Tatooine city of Mos Espa, known from Episode I as the home of Anakin Skywalker and the Boonta Eve pod race, which his winning of resulted in his freedom from Watto to begin his journey as a Jedi. With Indiana's long history of racing and the Episode I theme of its sister group Bloodfin Garrison, Mos Espa was the perfect choice. The base logo shows two pod racers, one red and one orange, the primary colors of the 501st and Rebel Legion, as they race their way across the desert wasteland of Tatooine.
Also associated with Mos Espa Base are the Boonta Eve Clanof Tusken Raiders, the 307th Desert Rats rebel trooper squad, and Massiff Squadron for rebel pilots.2px
