First Army, also known as the 1st Sector Army, the Azure Hammer Command, and the Coruscant Sector Army, was a clone trooper sector army that served within the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars, and later the Galactic Civil War under the reign of the Empire.

History[]

The First Army was one of 20 sector armies that served in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. The unit was created around 32 BBY when the rest of the clone army was commissioned.[1] The 1st was specifically stationed at the command position of the planet Anaxes.[2] The sector army consisted of 150,000 clone infantry units initially but grew even more exponentially as more units were commissioned for the war effort. The 1st Sector Army was under the command of a Governor-General, as well as a Jedi General.[2]

During the Galactic Civil War, the First Army consisted of 57 capital ships, as well as the Executor-class Star Dreadnaught Whelm. The 1st was controlled initially by Grand Admiral Osvald Teshik, until his command was stripped from him due to a failure in the battlefield.[2] Admiral Feyet Kiez was then given command, but a few months prior to the Thrawn Crisis, he surrendered the 1st's forces to the New Republic.[2]

Armor and Equipment[]

Throughout the Clone Wars, the 1st Sector Army would have been equipped with standard Phase I clone trooper armor and Phase II clone trooper armor. By the time of the creation of the Empire, they would have been issued Stormtrooper armor.

The 1st also possessed several capital ships, coming out to 57 capital ships, as well as their mobile headquarters aboard the Executor-class Star Dreadnaught Whelm.[2]
