Overview[edit]

The Four Hundred Tenth BattleMech Division was a part of the Star League Defense Force Regular Army.

History[edit]

The 410th Division was formed partly as a sociological experiment. The officers of the unit were drawn equally from all the Star League's member states, including the Periphery Territories. This means that the 410th was often assigned to ceremonial duties, particularly in the Terran Hegemony. This affected their skill levels. They were still a competent unit, but they didn't reach the same level of expertise that other SLDF units had attained.[1]

In 2764, the unit was assigned, as a part of the XXXII Corps, Fourteenth Army, to District 1 of the Draconis Combine Military Region and then transferred to District 2 by 2765, to take part in the Periphery Uprising.[2]

During 2765 the 410th was stationed on Mara, where the Fourth Dieron Regulars were also stationed. Major General Onyewu of the 410th offered to hold joint training exercises with the Fourth, but received only noncommittal replies from the Regulars.[3]

The 410th was destroyed during the Hegemony Campaign.[2]
