Overview[edit]

The Tenth Infantry Division was a part of the Star League Defense Force Regular Army.

History[edit]

In 2764, the unit was stationed on Ko[1], as a part of the XXI Corps, First Army, to the Terran Military Region, and later transferred to District One of the Lyran Commonwealth Military Region by 2765, to take part in the New Vandenberg Uprising.[2]

The Tenth participated in wargames against the 164th BattleMech Division frequently. In one notable engagement on Lyons, two infantry regiments of the Tenth were able to hold out for six weeks against the 1633rd Brigade by using the Givens Hollow Castle Brian.[3]

The Tenth was destroyed during the Hegemony Campaign.[2]

Officers[edit]

In 2764 the commanding officer of the unit is Major General Trevor MacLeish.[3]

Composition[edit]

As an SLDF Infantry division the 10th would have been formed from two Brigades of Grunt infantry and a brigade of light BattleMech regiments.[4]
