The Star League Defense Forces 18th Army was assigned to operations within the Outworlds Alliance Territorial State.

History

Formed in the great expansion of the SLDF, the Eighteenth Army replaced the II Corps and V Corps who had defeated and maintained control of the Outworlds Alliance since the Reunification War. At its peak the 18th consisted of twenty-four divisions which included six BattleMech divisions, fifteen infantry divisions and up thirty independent regiments. [1]

Like all Territorial State armies, the 18th initially attempted to stabilize tensions in the Alliance before Stefan Amaris's murder of Richard Cameron, suffering heavy losses in the assault on the Rim Worlds Republic and eventual recapture of the worlds of the Terran Hegemony. The Eighteenth Army was disbanded upon the collapse of the Star League.
