Alpha Squad was a squad of clone troopers that served in the Grand Army of the Republic. The unit was deployed in the Clone Wars.

History[]

Alpha Squad was formed in 32 BBY, with the commissioning of the Grand Army of the Republic.[1] The squad went through basic training, eventually be deployed at the beginning of the Clone Wars.

In 22 BBY, Alpha Squad was active during the Battle of Christophsis, fighting alongside the 327th Star Corps,[2] Thirteenth Army,[3] 212th Attack Battalion, 501st Legion, and Slick's platoon.[4] Alpha Squad, as well as Bravo Squad, were deployed to specifically secure two different areas from the incoming Separatist assault. Alpha was led by Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi to disrupt the advancement of the south force, whereas Bravo, which was led by Captain Rex, was assigned to block the Separatists from the east. One trooper rookie and Kenobi managed to charge the incoming droids on two opposing hallways. Once they were out of the way, the trooper blew the hallways with a V-1 thermal detonator.[5] The battle would end in a Republic victory,[6] despite the sabotage of many of their major weapons.[4]

Armor and Equipment[]

Alpha Squad was equipped with Phase I clone trooper armor, during their deployment at the Battle of Christophsis.[6] The unit likely served with the 212th, which meant they would have had orange markings on their armor. The unit possessed DC-15S blaster carbines, DC-15A blaster rifles, as well as V-1 thermal detonators.
