The 2nd Sector Army or more simply known as the Second Army, which was titled the Green Mantle Command, was a Sector Army within the Grand Army of the Republic. Within it's ranks was the 327th Star Corps. The army was stationed on Nubia.[1]

History Edit

The 2nd Sector Army was one of the twenty Sector Armies that composed the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. The army was based on the planet of Nubia.[1] The unit became known as the Green Mantle Command. The army was one of the two sector armies which made up of Systems Army Alpha, which was led solely by High Jedi General Mace Windu. However, the 2nd Army itself was under the command of Senior Jedi General Ry-Gaul and was designed as reserve command for the other sector armies.[1]

The army's primary role was to defend Sector 2 and the hyperspace junctions at Denon and Duro. The 2nd also blockaded the Neimoidian Purse Worlds later in the war.[1] As a sector army, initially, the 2nd Sector Army possessed 147,456 clone troopers within it's complement. The army also had additional support personnel divided into four corps. Out of the four, the most notable was the 327th Star Corps.[2] A majority of the units within the Second Army were via the 327th.

In 19 BBY, the 327th were deployed to fight at the Siege of Saleucami, a brutal five-month deployment, alongside the 91st Mobile Reconnaissance Corps, Faie's Unit, Red Squadron, Blue Squadron and Lighting Squadron.[3] After the Siege, they were assigned to Felucia, to take up where the 501st Legion let off. The Corps scouted throughout the planet until Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine, now as the Emperor Darth Sidious, initiated Order 66, the order kill all Jedi.[4][5] The army gunned Secura down in a second, repeatedly firing into her fallen corpse. Ry-Gaul only managed to escape the carnage by being on a special assignment in the Outer Rim.[6]

Under the Galactic Empire, the 2nd Sector Army was placed under the command of Grand Moff Fliry Vorru, the new Grand Moff of Sector 2, which was reorganized as the Correlian Oversector.[1]
