Ghost Squadron was a clone trooper squadron that served in the Grand Army of the Republic, within their naval division.

History[]

Ghost Squadron was a clone trooper squadron that served in the Grand Army of the Republic in the Republic Navy. The unit was likely created in 32 BBY when the clone troopers were commissioned.[1] The squadron received basic training, as well as pilot training, and eventually graduated, being deployed into the Clone Wars.

In 22 BBY, Ghost Squadron was deployed to the Battle of Nexus Ortai, serving alongside the Resolute under the command of Admiral Wulff Yularen, Jedi Generals Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, and Jedi Commander Ahsoka Tano.[2] Kenobi and Skywalker led Ghost Squadron through the battle. Once both sides suffered heavy losses, Skywalker ordered the squadron to attack the Separatist command ship. Ghost Squadron was successful in its operation. Once the remaining forces of Ghost Squadron and the Jedi pilots returned to the Venator-class Star Destroyers, the ships jumped into hyperspace.[2]

Armor and Equipment[]

The Ghost Squadron were equipped and trained to use V-19 Torrent starfighters. The pilots likely possessed a DC-15S blaster carbine or a DC-17 hand blaster in the case that they were shot down behind enemy lines.
