Hyperion Squad was a Clone commando squad that served within the Grand Army of the Republic under the Special Operations Brigade during the Clone Wars.


Hyperion Squad was created in 32 BBY when the Grand Army of the Republic was commissioned. The squad was trained by one of the 100 Cuy'val Dar, a group of mercenaries of primarily Mandalorian decent.[1] The squad would receive intensive training, including going through simulations such as the Killing House and the Sickener.[1]

In 22 BBY, Hyperion Squad was deployed to the First Battle of Geonosis.[2] Following the battle, the squad would be designated to serve within the Special Operations Brigade. Throughout the Clone Wars, the unit was likely dispatched on several covert operations and special missions.[1]

In 19 BBY, after Clone Protocol 66 was enacted, one of the 150 Contingency Orders for the GAR, Hyperion Squad became one of many clone commando squads that would desert from the military force.[3] Because of this, when the Imperial Commando Special Unit was retasked with hunting down remaining Jedi and deserters from the GAR, Hyperion Squad was listed on the warrant.[3]

Armor and Equipment[]

Hyperion Squad, as a commando squad, was likely equipped with DC-17m Interchangeable Weapon Systems and DC-15s side arm blasters.
