Fourteenth Army, also known as the 14th Sector Army and the Red Tails Command, was a clone trooper sector army that served within the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars and, later, the Imperial Military during the Galactic Civil War.

History[]

The 14th Sector Army was one of 20 sector armies that served within the Grand Army of the Republic. The unit was likely created around 32 BBY when the GAR was commissioned.[1] The 14th was specifically stationed at the command position of Ryloth.[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 14th Sector Army was under the command of a Governor-General, as well as a Jedi General.[2]

The 14th was activated in 22 BBY, during the first year of the Clone Wars. The 14th was specifically stationed on Ryloth to secure the surrounding sector, known as the Tolonda Oversector or Sector 14.[2] As the war progressed, the Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine promoted an individual known as Ravik to Moff, which gave him command of the 14th. At one point during the war, the army was responsible for taking down a Separatist attack at Ryloth and for repeatedly reinforcing the 13th Sector Army.[2]

Following the conclusion of the Clone Wars, the Republic's twenty sector commands continued on with the Empire's reign in the Imperial Army. Under the Empire's rule, Ravik ascended to Grand Moff and maintained his command. The Empire continued to accumulate and recruit soldiers of natural births, maintaining many clone troopers within their ranks. The total force of the unit accumulated to 1,572,864 soldiers, most of who were of natural births and a few clones, who had been either marginalized as minorities or retired from the Empire.[2][3]

Armor and Equipment[]

The 14th, as they were deployed throughout the Clone Wars, was equipped with Phase I clone trooper armor and Phase II clone trooper armor, as they survived the duration of the war. When the Empire was invoked, the unit was reequipped with Stormtrooper armor.
