|35th Infantry Division|
|Unit Profile (as of 2784)|
|Nickname||The Liberators of Java|
Might Before Metal
|Parent Formation||19th Army|
The Thirty-fifth Infantry Division was a part of the Star League Defense Force Regular Army.
In 2764 the Thirty-fifth was assigned to LVI Corps, a part of the Nineteenth Army, and was stationed in the Periphery Military Region. In fact it was stationed on Laconis, which at the time was undergoing a massive influx of immigrants. Unlike most SLDF units in the Taurian Concordat, the Thirty-fifth had a positive reputation after its commanding officer assigned her engineering, combat and support units to help the planetary government rebuild the capital city after a hurricane destroyed it in 2759.
Later the Thirty-fifth was moved to an undisclosed area of the Periphery in response to the Periphery Uprising in 2765. The Thirty-fifth survived both the Periphery Uprising and the Hegemony Campaign and followed General Aleksandr Kerensky on the Exodus in 2784.
