The 187th Battalion was a clone trooper battalion that served in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars, serving under Jedi General Mace Windu.

History[]

The 187th Battalion that served under Jedi General Mace Windu likely was created during the war, following the transference of Windu's command of the 91st Mobile Reconnaissance Corps. The unit received basic training and eventually graduated from basic training, being deployed into the ranks of the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars.

In 19 BBY, the battalion was deployed to the planet of Anaxes, being stationed at Fort Anaxes, working alongside the 501st Legion and the 7th Sky Corps.[1] The unit would fight on several fronts of the planet against Separatist forces, though to little avail.[1] It would later be revealed that Captain Rex had crafted an algorithm to interpret Separatist movements, which had been commandeered by the Separatists, who then changed their strategies.[1] Rex had only told Advanced Recon Commandos Echo and Fives know about the algorithm, and knowing without a doubt of Fives' death,[2] Rex speculated that Echo had to be alive, despite the presumption of him being killed in action.[1][3] Rex, as well as a special unit called Clone Force 99, deployed on a mission to investigate.[1]

Once returning to Anaxes, with the long-missing Echo, they planned a final assault against the Separatist forces there, with Clone Force 99, Rex, Echo, and Jedi General Anakin Skywalker infiltrating the Separatist flagship, while Windu and Kenobi's forces, alongside ARC Lieutenant Jesse, attacked the Separatist shipyards.[4] The battalion held the Separatist forces off for as long as they could, however, they were overrun and quickly surrounded. Despite this, the droids present were electronically shut down, which allowed for the remaining forces to survive. It was soon revealed that a bomb was in the shipyards in the condition that it came into Republic control, which led to the evacuation of the surviving forces, including the 187th and the 7th.[4]

Armor and Equipment[]

The 187th Battalion was equipped with Phase II clone trooper armor, which had brown markings around their armor, similar to how Windu's previous second-in-command Ponds had his painted. The unit also possessed DC-15S blaster carbines.
