In 2764, the unit was stationed on New Avalon[1], assigned as a part of the LIV Corps, Fourth Army, to District 3 of the Federated Suns Military Region but was moved to an undisclosed area of the Periphery to take part in the Periphery Uprising by 2765.[2]. The 50th survived the war and the Hegemony Campaign, and followed General Aleksandr Kerensky on the Exodus in 2784.[2]

The commanding officer in 2764 is Major General Alister Breckenridge-Sterling.[3]

Composition[edit]

As an SLDF Infantry division the 50th would have been formed from two brigades of grunt infantry and a brigade of light BattleMech regiments.[4]
