The Forty-Eighth Jump Infantry Division was a part of the Star League Defense Force Regular Army.
The 48th was a part of the XVIII Corps, Seventeenth Army, and in 2764 was assigned to an undisclosed world in the Magistracy of Canopus territorial state. The 48th was caught up in the rebellion that followed the New Vandenberg Uprising in 2765 and suffered heavy casualties. The 48th disbanded as a result, with some elements of the division joining the rebels.
As an SLDF jump infantry division the 48th would have been composed of two brigades of jump troops and a brigade of 'Mechs; the 48th would also have had two Ground Aero Wings to protect and carry the infantry.
