Nickname The Saffel Division
Affiliation Star League
Parent Command LVIII Corps

The 246th Royal BattleMech Division or the Saffel Division was a part of the Star League Defense Force Regular Army. As one of the SLDF Royal units the Saffel Division recruited from Terran Hegemony worlds exclusively.[1]


Between early 2762 and late 2763 the morale of the unit suffered, in response the commanding officer replaced six Battalion commanders and one Brigade commander for "seditious talk".[2]

The 246th formed a part of LVIII Corps, Seventh Army, and in 2764 was stationed in District 3 of the Capellan Confederation Military Region. Following the New Vandenberg Uprising and subsequent Periphery uprising the 246th was deployed along with the rest of LVIII Corps into an undisclosed area of the Periphery, where the division was destroyed.[1]
