Overview[edit]

The Sixty-first Royal Jump Infantry Division was a part of the Star League Defense Force Regular Army. It was one of the SLDF's Royal units, which consisted of troops from the Terran Hegemony.

History[edit]

In 2764 the unit was assigned as a part of the LXIV Corps, Eighteenth Army, to the Periphery Military Region but was moved to an undisclosed area of the Periphery to take part in the SLDF response to the Periphery Uprising by 2765.[1] The 61st survived the war and the Hegemony Campaign, and followed General Aleksandr Kerensky on the Exodus in 2784.[1]

Composition[edit]

As an SLDF Jump Infantry division the 61st would have been formed from two brigades of Jump Troops, one brigade of 'Mech regiments and two Ground Aero Wings.[2]
