Overview[edit]

The 359th 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 LVI Corps, Nineteenth Army, to the Periphery Military Region.[2]. The unit was stationed in the Brisbane system, which had only recently been opened to colonization. The 359th had an unexpected effect on the local economy: Due to logistics shortages O-P Computer Electronics opened a factory on Brisbane to supply the 359th's need for advanced Targeting-Tracking Systems. The company's support of the SLDF made it unpopular with the population, so they had to deploy forces to protect the plant.[1]

The ultimate fate of the 395th is unknown.[2]

Officers[edit]

In 2765 the unit was led by Major General Jordan Ward.[1]

Composition[edit]

As an SLDF BattleMech division the 359th would have been formed from two Brigades of BattleMech regiments and a brigade of Mechanized Infantry regiments.[3]
