Overview[edit]

The 413th BattleMech Division was a part of the Star League Defense Force Regular Army.

History[edit]

The Division was named after a Victorian Era revivalist movement in the early part of the 28th Century. The unit embraced a Steampunk culture, often derided by other commands, forcing General Nagenda to order all superficial decoration on BattleMechs and vehicles be removed.[1]

In 2764, the unit was assigned, as a part of the XXVII Corps, Eleventh Army, to District 1 of the Lyran Commonwealth Military Region and then transferred to District 2 by 2765, to take part in the Periphery Uprising.[2] The Division was destroyed during the Hegemony Campaign.[2]
