The 212th Mechanized Infantry Division was a part of the Star League Defense Force Regular Army.

They were assigned to garrison Togura, a system that provided a large amount of industrial metals. The component commands were responsible for guarding energy infrastructure, which required them to protect solar panel farms, refineries, and orbital solar power collectors.
The 212th was moved to an undisclosed area of the Periphery in response to the Periphery Uprising in 2765. The 212th survived the war and the Hegemony Campaign, and followed General Aleksandr Kerensky on the Exodus in 2784.
