Overview[edit]

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

History[edit]

In 2725 the Division landed on the planet of Breed to put an end to the ongoing fighting between House Davion and House Kurita forces, as part of the Second Hidden War. The combatants were not intimidated by the First and chose to engage them, only to find the First greatly out-classed them.[1]

In 2764, the unit was stationed on Batavia[2], assigned as a part of the LII Corps, Second Army, to District 1 of the Federated Suns Military Region and then transferred to District 3 by 2765 as part of the redeployment effort to fight the Periphery Uprising.[3]. The Division survived the war and the Hegemony Campaign, and followed General Aleksandr Kerensky on the Exodus in 2784.[3]

Officers[edit]

The commanding officer in 2764 was Major General Angelia Drina.[4]

Composition[edit]

As an SLDF Jump Infantry division the First would have been formed from two brigades of Jump Troops, one brigade of 'Mech regiments and two Ground Aero Wings.[5]
