|Sword and Shield maneuver|
- Rex: "We've gotta scatter them. Use the Sword and Shield maneuver."
- Ezra: "Wait, what does that mean?"
- Kanan: "We block. He fires."
- —The tactic used in 2 BBY.
The Sword and Shield maneuver was named due to the process of the tactic; the Jedi or clone would deflect or block blaster bolts from the other Jedi or clone who would prepare a counterattack. Both cases were recorded in 19 BBY, with clones deflecting and Jedi attacking, and in 2 BBY, with Jedi deflecting and a clone attacking.
The maneuver was used in 19 BBY, during the Battle of Ringo Vinda, by Commander Doom's unit, who used Blast shields to block oncoming fire from Destroyer droids, while Jedi General Tiplar manipulated the droids by lifting them in the air. The troopers rolled Electro Magnetic Pulse grenades under their shields and disabled the droids. In 2 BBY, while on a Mission to Agamar, the tactic was performed by Jedi Kanan Jarrus and Jedi Lieutenant Commander Ezra Bridger, as well as Captain Rex. The two Jedi defended Rex while he prepared thermal detonators and threw them at the oncoming droids.
