Overview[edit]

The Two Hundred Eighty-fourth BattleMech Division was a part of the Star League Defense Force Regular Army.

History[edit]

In 2764, the unit was assigned, as a part of the XXIII Corps, Fifteenth Army, to District 2 of the Draconis Combine Military Region. Though intended to be a multinational force like the 410th BattleMech Division over time many of the officers from the Star League Member States and Terran Hegemony were promoted out of the unit. This left many officers from the Periphery nations in command, and morale suffered as they saw other officers "pass them by". The SLDF command tried to remedy this by assigning new officers from the Terran Hegemony to the unit, but as of 2765 this had made little difference to the morale problem.[1]

During the Periphery Uprising it was moved to an undisclosed area of the Periphery.[2]

Composition[edit]

As an SLDF BattleMech division the 284th would have been formed from two Brigades of BattleMech regiments and a brigade of Mechanized Infantry regiments.[3]
