Selatapura (セラタプラ Seratapura)[1] is a coastal city situated on the Gunther Peninsula in southwestern Usea, west of Axel Bay.[2] The city is physically connected to the International Space Elevator by a bridge.

Description

Selatapura is a highly-developed port city, with a large port area and developing residential and business center. The International Space Elevator is built on an island near the city, with a long bridge linking the two together. Selatapura also features a large military presence, including an airfield and naval forces, likely as support for the space elevator.

History

Selatapura experienced hardships during the Second Usean Continental War.[2] The city was captured by ISAF sometime between July 10 and August 15, 2005, following the liberation of San Salvacion.[3]

In the 2010s, Selatapura experienced massive economic growth and expansion.[2] The space elevator's construction further spurred on the city's economic success.[4]

The city was the site of at least one major battle during the Osea-Erusea Conflict. Erusean forces seized the space elevator and engaged the international military forces stationed there, sinking a large number of warships.[5]

Trivia

  • "Selatapura" is a hybrid name derived from two languages: selatan from Malay, and pura from Sanskrit, which mean "south" and "city" respectively.
  • Selatapura is highly reminiscent of Singapore. It features curved buildings very similar to the Marina Bay Sands, a district similar to that of the Central Area, and a stadium that looks exactly like the National Stadium.
    • In Malay, Singapore is referred to as Singapura, which shares the same -pura suffix as Selatapura, further adding to the two cities' similarities.
    • Selatapura also features the Bank of China building from Hong Kong.
  • According to the Ace Combat 04: Shattered Skies briefing map, Selatapura would have most likely been under the control of an unnamed Usean country allied with ISAF.[6] However, according to the Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy and Ace Combat 7 briefing maps, Selatapura—and the entirety of the Gunther Peninsula—is in Erusea's borders.[5][7] The release of Ace Combat 7 is expected to address this inconsistency.
