A legion was a type of military unit. Typically, the term indicated a large-scale formation comparable to a division or battle-group, consisting of several regiments and comprising about ten thousand fighting troops.
The Legion was not a standard element in the line Army forces of the Galactic Republic, which identified comparable formations as divisions and battle-groups. It was, however, a key field formation for the white-armored clone troopers of the Grand Army of the Republic.
A clone legion consisted of 9,216 troops, normally headed by a Jedi General and a Senior clone commander. A GAR legion, with some 7,000 attached support personnel, was the standard complement of an Acclamator-class assault ship.
