In the 1980s and early 1990s, the Scinfaxi was built in a secret development facility in the outskirts of Okchabursk. This detail was revealed when the Scinfaxi itself was revealed in September 1991. The Yuktobanian Navy made Okchabursk the home port of the Scinfaxi, its sister ship the Hrimfaxi, and the Super-Scinfaxi class Alicorn. All three were held in underground facilities.
In December 2010, Okchabursk was targeted by the Grey Men in an attempt to provoke all-out nuclear warfare between Osea and Yuktobania. To accomplish this, the Belkans planned to use Osea's Arkbird spacecraft to detonate a V1 nuclear weapon over the city on December 19 at 1400hrs.
An encrypted message confirming the attack and its time was intercepted by the OFS Andromeda. In response, Razgriz Squadron, operating under the direct orders of Osean President Vincent Harling, intercepted and shot down the Arkbird over the Ceres Ocean, sparing Okchabursk.
- Okchabursk's name is a misspelling of Oktyabrsk (Октябрьск), a Russian city. Октябрьск translates to "October", which contrasts with Osea's November City.
