History[edit]

In 2764, the unit was stationed on Chesterton[1], assigned as a part of the XXIX Corps, Second Army to District 1 of the Federated Suns Military Region, but was moved to District 3 during the Periphery Uprising by 2765.[2]

In February 2774 the 159th was assaulting Amaris' forces on Slocum[3] in an effort to liberate that planet.

The 159th survived the war and the Hegemony Campaign, to be absorbed by the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns by 2784.[2]

Officers[edit]

The commanding officer in 2764 was Major General Chariton Amilcar.[4]

Composition[edit]

As an SLDF BattleMech Division the 159th would have been composed with two Brigades of 'Mech regiments and one brigade of Mechanized Infantry regiments.[5]

  • 1591st BattleMech Brigade [6]
  • 1592nd BattleMech Brigade
  • 1593rd Brigade

Notes[edit]

The Novel Star Lord notes the unit as a Royal Division. This is in error. [7].
