Overview[edit]

The Three Hundred Sixty-fourth BattleMech Division was a part of the Star League Defense Force Regular Army.

History[edit]

In 2764, the unit was under the command of General Stephen James Gaffa[1] and assigned, as a part of the LXV Corps, Nineteenth Army, to the Periphery Military Region.[2] The 364th was destroyed during the Periphery Uprising in 2765.[2]

General Gaffa was supposedly killed on 4 November 2765 in a small ravine area over Sander's Creek on New Vandenburg in an ambush by separatist forces that specifically targeted him. Unconfirmed later sightings of his Highlander as a ghost 'Mech would give rise to the legend of "Great Gaffa's Ghost".[3]

Composition[edit]

As an SLDF BattleMech division the 364th would have been formed from two Brigades of BattleMech regiments and a brigade of Mechanized Infantry regiments.[4]
