The 160th Mechanized Infantry Division was a part of the Star League Defense Force Regular Army.
In 2764, the unit was assigned as a part of XXXV Corps, Fifteenth Army, to District 2 of the Draconis Combine Military Region, but was moved to an undisclosed area of the Periphery as a part of the SLDF response to the general Periphery uprising following the New Vandenberg Uprising. The 160th was destroyed in the Periphery in 2765.
The Mechanized Infantry Divisions of the Star League were used offensively to exploit gaps in the enemy front created by the BattleMech Divisions. They also bore the brunt of defensive actions.
The Division comprised two Brigades of Mechanized Infantry and a single BattleMech Brigade. Also attached was a Ground Aero Wing.
