401st Division (ComStar)
|401st Division Level IV-chi|
|Unit Profile (as of 3052)|
|Nickname||The White Eagles|
|Parent Formation||5th Army|
|Formed||Unknown (mid 3030's)|
Along with the rest of the Fifth Army, the 401st was assigned to combat Clan Smoke Jaguar during the Battle of Tukayyid and was stationed alongside the 367th and 207th Divisions in the swamps and marshes of the Racice River Delta which lay between the drop zone of the saKhan Sarah Weaver led Beta Galaxy and their target of Port Racice.     
While the Jaguar's combat drop went well, the 401st and its fellow divisions used swampy terrain to its maximum advantage, quickly stalling their advance. Rising in ambushes from hidden positions in the delta's deep pools and river channels, the cool waters negating the Clan's heat sink advantage, the elements of the 401st faced the bogged down Clusters of Beta. By the end of the third day the 207th had surrounded Beta's Command Star, killing saKhan Weaver and triggering the dispirited Beta Galaxy into retreat, the Smoke Jaguars never coming close to even threatening Port Racice.     
After the withdrawal of the Jaguars, Precentor Martial Anastasius Focht assigned the 401st to bolster the forces facing Clan Steel Viper. Stationed alongside the Sixth Army's 321st Division just outside the hellish Devil's Bath, as the battered Steel Viper galaxies finally emerged, both division attacked and broke through Gamma Galaxy's lines. While not forcing the Clan forces into retreat themselves, they did block the Vipers long enough for further reinforcements to arrive and drive them back.     
Despite its valiant efforts against the Jaguars and Vipers, Precentor Martial Focht elected to disband rather than rebuild the heavily damaged 410st Division, transferring its survivors to other units.
