Overview[edit]

The One Hundred Twenty-fifth BattleMech Division was a part of the Star League Defense Force Regular Army.

History[edit]

Nicknamed "The Talitha Division" because its initial officers were from Talitha. Purportedly within the Ursa Major constellation, Talitha's identity also informs the division's tactics as they emulate a hibernating bear and lull their enemy into a false security before attacking with overwhelming force.[1]

In 2764, the unit was assigned, as a part of the IV Corps, Tenth Army, to District 3 of the Free Worlds League Military Region, but was moved to an undisclosed area of the Periphery.[2] The 125th was destroyed during the Hegemony Campaign.[2]
