Hammer Squadron was clone trooper pilot squadron that served in the Grand Army of the Republic within the Republic Navy during the Clone Wars.

History[]

Hammer Squadron was likely created in 32 BBY when the clone troopers were commissioned.[1] The squadron was specifically trained to handle starfighters, V-19 Torrent starfighters to be precise.[2]

In 21 BBY, Hammer Squadron was deployed to the Battle of Lanteeb, fighting alongside Gold Squadron and Arrow Squadron. The squadron deployed from the Venator-class Star Destroyer Pioneer. The squadron was deployed under the command of Jedi General Anakin Skywalker, being assigned to destroy Separatist General Lok Durd's bioweapon. During the battle, however, Hammer Squadron lost a quarter of its contingent, as did Arrow Squadron.[2]

Armor and Equipment[]

Hammer Squadron was equipped with V-19 Torrent starfighters and Phase I clone trooper armor in the pilot configuration. The troopers within the squadron were also likely equipped with a DC-15S blaster carbine or a DC-17 hand blaster in case of being shot down behind enemy lines.
