Grand Army of the Republic

The Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) was the name given the military forces of the Republic at the open of the Clone Wars. The GAR consisted mostly of Clones that were genetically bred for the battle, but also included their Jedi Generals and numerous volunteers in the form of starship Captains and naval tacticians.

The total size of the GAR at it’s largest numbered approximately 3,943,330 clones, 1,355 naval commanders and 650 Jedi. In addition to these combat troops, there are countless naval volunteer crew members. The remaining Jedi of the Order were utilized in diplomatic capacities not directly associated with the military.

The structure of the GAR was broken down as follows;

The most common method of identifying an individual Clone is through the System Army they operate in, and they are defined via color. There are two Systems Army per Primary or Secondary color, one being a Pastel of the color, the other being a Matte or Royal of the color. The home defense army has the color of the Office of the Supreme Chancellor. The pattern of color is next, as each is Legion specific. Finally, the specific armor and gear identify the Battalion and purpose of the Clone. When defining Legion, they are three digit numbers, broken down as follows;

Hundred’s digit: System Army association 1 (0-5 Pastel, 6-9 Royal)
0 – Home Defense – Red
1,6 – System Army – Purple
2,7 – System Army – Orange
3,8 – System Army – Yellow
4,9 – System Army – Green
5 – System Army – Blue

Ten’s digit: Specialization
0 – Special Operations – Stripes/Banding
1 – Special Operations – Stripes/Banding
2 – Infantry – Stripes/Banding
3 – Infantry – Stripes/Banding
4 – Siege Warfare – Stripes/Banding
5 – Special Operations – Full Plates
6 – Special Operations – Full Plates
7 – Infantry – Full Plates
8 – Infantry – Full Plates
9 – Siege Warfare – Full Plates

One’s Digit: Sector Army Designation (0-8)
