Overview[edit]

The 355th BattleMech Division was a part of the Star League Defense Force Regular Army.

History[edit]

The division has a large chaplain corps, which evolved from the late 2600s onwards into a tradition of a weekly interfaith service respectful of all creeds and beliefs.[1]

In 2764, the unit was assigned, as a part of the VII Corps, Eighth Army, to District 1 of the Free Worlds League Military Region and then transferred to District 2 by 2765, to take part in the Periphery Uprising.[2] The 335th was destroyed during the Hegemony Campaign.[2]

Officers[edit]

Major General Stuart Mazzarella was the commanding officer in 2764. [1]

Composition[edit]

As an SLDF BattleMech division the 335th would have been formed from two Brigades of BattleMech regiments and a brigade of Mechanized Infantry regiments.[3]

2764[edit]

  • 3351st Brigade [4]
  • 3352nd Brigade
  • 3353rd Brigade

The Ground Aero Wing, The Seraphim, is reinforced and therefore over-sized.[1]

Notes[edit]

Windham Katib, the first Khan of Clan Cloud Cobra, served in the 335th before it was destroyed.[5]
