The 189th formed a part of XXIV Corps, Fifth Army, and in 2764, the unit was stationed on Asuncion in District 1 of the Capellan Confederation Military Region. Following the New Vandenberg Uprising and subsequent Periphery uprising the 189th was moved to District 2 of the CCMR in 2765 to backfill for units deployed into the periphery.
The Division was trained for urban combat.
As an SLDF jump infantry division the 189th would have been formed from one brigade of BattleMech regiments and two brigades of jump infantry, which would have been supported by two Ground Aero Wings which protected and carried the infantry.
