The 205th BattleMech Division was a part of the Star League Defense Force Regular Army.


In 2710, the 205th BattleMech Division earned its nickname "The Alamo Division" in a battle with a rogue BattleMech regiment from the Taurian Concordat on Valois. During the battle, a Taurian Dropship launched an Alamo nuclear weapon at the oncoming 205th troops. One of the LAMs pilots with the 205th realized what type of missile the Taurians had launched and intercepted it. The sacrifice of the pilot saved the 205th as the warhead exploded in the atmosphere, killing only the LAM pilot.[1]

In 2764, the unit was stationed on Minette[2], assigned as a part of the LXIX Corps, Third Army, to District 2 of the Federated Suns Military Region, but was moved to an undisclosed are of the Periphery by 2765, to take part in the Periphery Uprising.[3] The 205th was destroyed during the Hegemony Campaign.[3]
