This squadron was a cavalry unit led by Sergeant Swift during the Clone Wars. They rode AT-RTs during the Siege of the Tambor Deep Space Centre, but were entirely wiped out.[1]

History[]

Early in the Clone Wars, the 91st Mobile Reconnaissance Corps was sent on a raid to the Tambor Deep Space Centre, a Separatist ship repair base. The clone forces, led by Obi-Wan Kenobi and Mace Windu, were unable to penetrate the station's central bunker with a rocket launcher. Commander Cody ordered Sergeant Swift to lead his squadron of AT-RTs against the bunker, with Swift suggesting that a a barrage of thermal detonators would be enough.[1]

However, as the squadron progressed, hidden blaster turrets appeared from the floor. Swift encouraged his men to push through the defenses, but they were ultimately unable to reach the bunker. The whole squadron was wiped out in the trap.[1]

Armor and Equipment[]

The clone troopers of this unit wore Phase I clone trooper armor decorated in red to signal their affiliation in the 91st Mobile Reconnaissance Corps. They utilized All Terrain Recon Transports in combat, and were trained with thermal detonators.[1]

Notes[]

  1. 1.0 1.1 Ponds is featured in "The Droid Deception", the story in which Swift's squadron is destroyed. As Ponds himself dies in 21 BBY, it can be presumed that the story must have taken place sometime from 22 BBY to 21 BBY.
  2. In the "The Droid Deception", the most walkers seen together are eight.
