Unit numbering in long-existing military systems tends to be a bit of a mockery.

It's also possible that the 70th was a deactivated unit from the 14-Year-War or Great War and the unit's number, name, and insigina was reactivated for the Second Shivan Invasion.
Karajorma's Freespace FAQ. It's almost like asking me yourself.

The Waffen SS Divisions in WW2 were the Nazi elites from what I remember.
"The reason for this is that the original Fortran got so convoluted and extensive (10's of millions of lines of code) that no-one can actually figure out how it works, there's a massive project going on to decode the original Fortran and write a more modern system, but until then, the UK communication network is actually relying heavily on 35 year old Fortran that nobody understands." - Flipside
