Alpha Company was a clone trooper unit that served in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. The unit was outfitted with three All Terrain Tactical Enforcers and four All Terrain Experimental Transports.

History[]

Alpha Company was likely created in the year 32 BBY on the water planet of Kamino, the year that the Grand Army of the Republic was commissioned.[1] The unit was given extensive training and eventually deployed during the Clone Wars.

Alpha Company would be deployed during the early days of the war, to the planet of Raxus Prime. The unit was taken by an Acclamator-class assault ship led by Jedi Generals Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker. The company was deployed to investigate an excavation site that Count Dooku had an interest in, specifically an ancient Sith artifact used by the Dark Reaper; the Force Harvester.[2]

Alpha Company led the main assault, while Beta Squadron went around the back. Alpha encountered heavy resistance, fighting through waves of Homing spider droids, Ground Armored tanks, Hailfire droids, Heavy artillery guns, and NR-N-99 droid tanks. Upon reaching the perimeter of their objective, Kenobi snuck into the confines of the objective, allowing both Alpha and Beta units to converge.[2]

Kenobi maneuvered the unit to engage the fuel bays supporting an excavation crane whilst Skywalker and the AT-XTs' focused on nearby enemy forces. Kenobi would then destroy a shield generator, which allowed Beta to converge, alongside Alpha. Dooku revealed his whereabouts, which forced Skywalker to chase after him. However, before Kenobi could follow him in pursuit, a protodeka appeared and destroyed a majority of the Republic forces in the perimeter, including both Alpha Company and Beta Squadron. Kenobi was able to destroy the tank, avenging the two units, when he was informed by clone forces that had survived that the artifact was gone.[2]

Armor and Equipment[]

Alpha Company was deployed with Phase I clone trooper armor during their time active in the war. The unit was likely outfitted with DC-15A blaster rifles and DC-15S blaster carbine. On top of those armaments, the unit was given heavy artillery, possessing at least three All Terrain Tactical Enforcers and four All Terrain Experimental Transports.[2]
