|Unit Profile (as of 2766)|
|Parent Formation||XVIII Corps|
The Forty-Eighth Jump Infantry Division was a part of the Star League Defense Force Regular Army.
The Forty-Eighth 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 Forty-Eighth was caught up in the rebellion that followed the New Vandenberg Uprising in 2765 and suffered heavy casualties. The Forty-Eighth disbanded as a result, with two Battalions of the division joining the rebels. These rogue elements were destroyed in combat in 2767
As an SLDF jump infantry division the Forty-Eighth would have been composed of two brigades of jump troops and a brigade of 'Mechs; the Forty-Eighth would also have had two Ground Aero Wings to protect and carry the infantry.
