Hawkbat Battalion was a clone trooper battalion that served within the Grand Army of the Republic. The battalion was given command of several subunits during the war, all of whom fell under the command of Major Twelve.

History[]

Hawkbat Battalion was created in 32 BBY when the clone troopers were commissioned.[1] The battalion was given command of several subunits, though Major Twelve. The subunits of the Hawkbat Battalion included Talon Squad, 2nd Platoon, K Company, and Bacta Company. The battalion itself served under the following units of the 101st Regiment, the 7th Legion, the 327th Star Corps, the Second Army, and finally under the Systems Army Alpha.[2]

In 22 BBY, the Hawkbat Battalion was deployed to the First Battle of Geonosis, like all active clone units.[2][3] However, the battalion was assigned to march directly into a line of Separatist spider droids, which saw a majority of the battalion decimated. Captain Deviss of K Company heroically remained in a crater, covering two injured troopers until the Casevac Team arrived, which occurred three hours later.[2]

Later that year, the Hawkbat Battalion was deployed to an unidentified planet where they fought against Separatist forces, which included standard battle droids, super battle droids, and dwarf spider droids. The battalion also utilized Low Altitude Assault Transport/infantry gunships and Aethersprite-class light interceptors.[4]

In 19 BBY, when Order 66 was activated, the battalion was incorporated into the Stormtrooper Corps of the newly organized Galactic Empire.[2]

Armor and Equipment[]

The Hawkbat Battalion was equipped with a multitude of weaponry, with a majority of troopers being armed with DC-15A blaster rifles. Captain Deviss was also equipped with DC-17 hand blasters. When deployed to the unidentified planet, they also used Aethersprite-class light interceptors and Low Altitude Assault Transport/infantry gunships.
