Overview[edit]

The Two Hundred Fifty-seventh 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 V Corps, Eleventh Army, to District 1 of the Lyran Commonwealth Military Region. It served as a reserve for the Corps, maintaining a presence on Sakhalin that was on the opposite side of the world from the rest of V Corps. This allowed the unit to maintain its independence.[1]

It was later transferred to District 3 by 2765, to take part in the Periphery Uprising.[2] The 257th was destroyed during the Hegemony Campaign.[2]

Composition[edit]

As an SLDF Battle regiment the 257th would have been composed primarily of medium to heavy 'Mechs.[3]
