247th Division (ComStar)

247th Division IV-pi
Unit Profile (as of 3052)
Nickname Thoughts of War
Parent Formation Ninth Army
Formed Unknown (mid 3030's)

Among those forces who fought against Clan Wolf during the Battle of Tukayyid, the 247th Division suffered so heavy losses that was disbanded after that conflict.


Prior to the Clan Invasion, the veteran rated 247th Division was known by the nickname of Thoughts of War with its headquarters on the Lyran Commonwealth world of Rahne.[1]

As part of the 9th Army, during the Battle of Tukayyid the Two-Hundred and Forty-Seventh faced the fearsome threat of Clan Wolf. Initally held in reserve, the 247th and 198th Division were hurriedly added to try and bolster the Com Guards defensive line protecting the target city of Skupo. Despite superior numbers and good defensive positions, the unceasing assault ultimately wore away the ComStar defenders and line shattered after the Wolves eliminated the troublesome 278th Division, savaging divisions like the 247th as they advanced on Skupo. [2]

Like many divisions who faced the Wolves, the Two-Hundred and Forty-Seventh suffered extremely heavy losses, with Precentor Martial Anastasius Focht opting to reassign the survivors to bolster other divisions and disband the 247th rather than rebuild it.


As of 3050 the Two-Hundred and Forty-Seventh was commanded by Precentor Lothar Purdin. [1]


  • While its fate is not explicitly mentioned, the fact it only appears in 20-Year Update and Tukayyid points its destruction and disbandment after Tukayyid.
