Overview[edit]

The Thirty-fourth Royal BattleMech Division was a part of the Star League Defense Force Regular Army. It was one of the SLDF's Royal units, which consisted of troops from the Terran Hegemony.

History[edit]

In 2764, the unit was assigned, as a part of the XI Corps, Sixteenth Army, to District 3 of the Draconis Combine Military Region, but was moved to an undisclosed area in the Periphery in 2765, to take part in the Periphery Uprising.[1] Supported by the 568th Armed Transport Flotilla the Thirty-fourth went AWOL after learning of the Amaris Coup.[2] The Thirty-fourth was destroyed during the Amaris Civil War in 2766[1] by Epsilon Indi's SDS system as they attempted to land on the planet. The majority of the Division perished in space with only a handful actually reaching the planet's surface.[3]

Composition[edit]

As an SLDF BattleMech Division the Division would have been composed with two Brigades of 'Mech regiments and one brigade of Mechanized Infantry regiments.[4]
