Unit Profile (as of 3052)
Nickname The Sun of Communication
Parent Formation 11th Army

The 223rd Division was one of the many Com Guard units disbanded in the wake the Battle of Tukayyid.


Prior to the inital Clan Invasion the green-rated 223rd Division was known by the nickname of The Sun of Communication and assigned to the 11th Army. Then a IV-iota based formation, the 223rd's headquarters world was Tamar in the Lyran side of the Federated Commonwealth.[1]

Along with the rest of the relatively green Eleventh Army, the Two-Hundred and Twenty-Third Division was initally assigned to defeat Clan Jade Falcon during the Battle of Tukayyid, the divisions of the Eleventh taking heavy losses but ultimately able to force the Falcons to withdraw without successfully capturing and holding either of their targets. [2] [3] [4] [5] Once the Falcons has retreated the Eleventh Army was sent to reinforce the 9th and 10th Armies faultering defense against Clan Wolf's advance to their secondary target of Brzo. [6] [7] [4]

While the Wolves intially pulled back to secure their supply lines in the face of these fresh troops, the Eleventh Army chose to take the intiative and launched an all-out attack against the Wolves Beta Galaxy in the Pozoristu Mountains, succeeding in killing the Wolves senior Khan Garth Radick. Unfortunately though the Wolves advance did briefly faulter with Radick's death, saKhan Natasha Kerensky 13th Wolf Guards kept going, forcing their way pass nine Com Guard divisions to take Brzo.

Despite its valiant efforts against the Clans, Precentor Martial Anastasius Focht elected to disband rather than rebuild the heavily damaged Two-Hundred and Twenty-Third Division, transferring its survivors to other units.


Composition History[edit]


  • 223rd Division IV-iota The Sun of Communication [1]


  • Unlike many of the divisions of the Eleventh Army, the 223rd is not mentioned by name in any source on the Battle of Tukayyid, appearing in that Army in 20-Year Update but not included in its post-Tukayyid roster in ComStar, its fate based on conjecture.
