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


In 2764 the Thirty-fifth was assigned to LVI Corps, a part of the Nineteenth Army, and was stationed in the Periphery Military Region. In fact it was stationed on Laconis, which at the time was undergoing a massive influx of immigrants. Unlike most SLDF units in the Taurian Concordat, the Thirty-fifth had a positive reputation after its commanding officer assigned her engineering, combat, and support units to help the planetary government rebuild the capital city after a hurricane destroyed it in 2759.[1]

Later the Thirty-fifth was moved to an undisclosed area of the Periphery in response to the Periphery Uprising in 2765.[3]. The Thirty-fifth survived both the Periphery Uprising and the Hegemony Campaign and followed General Aleksandr Kerensky on the Exodus in 2784.[3]


In 2764 the Division was commanded by Major General Mila Vandroogenbroeck.[1]

The last commanding officer of the Thirty-fifth Infantry Division was Lieutenant General John Fletcher[4] who was in command of the Thirty-fifth from at least 2765[5] until the end of the Amaris Civil War. Fletcher would later become the first Khan of Clan Hell's Horses.[6]

Composition History[edit]

As an SLDF Infantry division the Thirty-fifth would have been formed from two brigades of grunt infantry and a brigade of light BattleMech regiments.[7]


The Alpha Keshik of Clan Hell's Horses shares the same nickname as that of the 35th.
