The End of the 48thEdit

(For More Information, See Operation Firestorm)

The 48th Division was one of many Mobile Infantry Divisions called up to take part in the spearhead assault for a bold move into Arachnid territory, codenamed Operation Firestorm. The aim of the mission was to secure a foothold on the Arachnid planet Tango Urilla. Within hours of the first landing, a general retreat had been ordered but the 48th Division's ship, The ISS Prefect, was seriously hit by bug plasma, and crashed into the planet's surface. With no alternative, High Command was forced to nuke the entire area; and along with it, the entirety of the 48th, 37th, 83rd and 109th Divisions. This marked the end of the 48th Division, and the whole Division was marked as KIA.

Reforming of the 48thEdit

High Command has not mentioned any intention to reform the 48th Division, and the matter remains one for debate between Federation Officials.
