The 127th Gunship Wing was an air wing of the Republic Navy in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars.

History[]

The 127th Gunship Wing was first deployed to the planet of Geonosis for the Clone Wars' first battle, the First Battle of Geonosis. Commander Jag was first deployed during the battle, where he fought.[1]

Later during the Clone Wars, Commander Jag flew in the Battle of Katraasii. However, the battle turned on the Republic, which forced the Republic and the 127th Gunship Wing to retreat, which disgraced Jag and resulted him in becoming demoted to Captain.[1][2][3] Luckily, however, Jedi General Plo Koon took a shine to Jag and put him in charge of flying the experimental Aggressive ReConnaissance-170 starfighters.[1]

In 19 BBY, the 127th Gunship Wing and Koon were deployed to Cato Neimoidia. While on patrol, the clones received Order 66, the order to kill all Jedi leaders. Jag and the other trooper on patrol, CT-57/11-9048, opened fire on Koon and killed him instantly.[4] Koon's ship crashed into a clone staging area, which resulted in the deaths of 141 clone troopers.[5]
