Overview[edit]

The Two Thousand Fourth Battle Regiment was a part of the Star League Defense Force Regular Army.

History[edit]

In 2764, the unit was assigned, as a part of the 297th Mechanized Infantry Division, XII Corps, Eighth Army, to District 1 within the Free Worlds League Military Region, and transferred to District 2 during the Periphery Uprising.[2] Though the 297th itself suffered heavy losses during the Hegemony Campaign and was disbanded, the 2004th did survive the war, to be absorbed by the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns[2][1] in 2784.[1] The Armed Forces of the Federated Suns redesignated the 2004th the Third Avalon Borderers, expanding the Avalon Borderers brigade using the 2004th and two other former SLDF regiments.[1]

Composition[edit]

As an SLDF Battle regiment the 2004th would have been composed primarily of medium to heavy 'Mechs.[3]
