112th Repulsorlift Armor Regiment, later known more commonly as the Imperial Hammers Elite Armor Unit, or Hell's Hammers, was a special unit, which was created at the end of the Clone Wars and placed in the Grand Army of the Republic until its reorganization into the Imperial Military.

History[]

The 112th Repulsorlift Armor Regiment was created in 19 BBY,[1] the final year of the Clone Wars. The regiment was created from existing units within the Grand Army of the Republic.[2] When the Galactic Republic was reformed into the Galactic Empire and the enactment of Order 66, Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine declared himself Emperor over the universe.[3] The regiment was transformed into the Imperial Hammers Elite Armor Unit.[2]

Under Imperial reign, the unit's command was given to High Colonel Zel Johans,[2] with First Sergeant Jimmon Arbmab acting as a staff officer.[4] The Empire deployed the Imperial Hammers Elite Armor Unit, now known as Hell's Hammers,[2] into the Outer-Rim Territories to eliminate any resistance against the New Order.[1]

The unit would later be deployed into the Battle of Turak IV, as well as many other deployments during the initial reign of the Galactic Empire.[5] By 0 BBY, the Hell's Hammers were stationed on the planet of Jedha, acting as enforcers.[6] However, while the Hell's Hammers were highly capable of holding their own, one of their detachments was ambushed by the rebel Saw Gerrera's Partisans.[6] The rest of the Imperial Hammers Elite Armor Unit was evacuated from the planet before the demonstration of the Death Star's super laser.[6]

Throughout the rest of their commission, the Hell's Hammers were secluded on the planet of Brintooin under the command of Grand Admiral Thrawn, during his confederacy.[2] The Imperial Hammers Elite Armor Unit was stationed on the planet following the apparent capture of the planet, remaining as a diplomatic solution with the New Republic.[2]

Armor and Equipment[]

The 112th Repulsorlift Armor Regiment was well-equipped with heavy machinery, which included S-1 FireHawke Heavy Repulsortanks, Imperial-class Repulsortanks of both Marks I and II, Heavy Recovery Vehicles, Repulsorlift Barges,[2] and TX-225 GAVw "Occupier" Combat Assault Tanks.[6]
