During the Clone Wars, it was known as the 224th Division of the Grand Army of the Republic. A detachment of the 224th known as the Mud Jumpers fought on Mimban. The division later returned to Mimban as the Galactic Empire sought to pacify the world and quell a rebellion that had formed there. Corporal Han Solo was a member of the 224th Imperial Armored Division and fought with them before he defected from Imperial service.
Under the Empire, the 224th Imperial Armored Division utilized All Terrain Defense Turrets as mobile artillery, Y-45 armored transport hauler airborne transports, and both wet-weather gear stormtroopers and swamp troopers as specialized swamp terrain infantry.
