Overview[edit]

The Thirty-Third Mechanized Infantry Division was a part of the Star League Defense Force Regular Army.

History[edit]

In 2764 the Thirty-third was a part of XV Corps within the Fifteenth Army and was assigned to District 2 of the Draconis Combine Military Region, but the Thirty-third was moved to an undisclosed area of the Periphery in 2765 in response to the Periphery Uprising.[1] The Thirty-third was subsequently destroyed during the Hegemony Campaign.[1]

Tactics[edit]

The Mechanised Infantry Divisions of the Star League were used offensively to exploit gaps in the enemy front created by the BattleMech Divisions. They also bore the brunt of defensive actions.

Composition History[edit]

The Division comprised two Brigades of Mechanised Infantry and a single BattleMech Brigade. Also attached was a Ground Aero Wing.[2]
