"To the forward command center, take me."
―Jedi Master Yoda to Clone Pilot during the Battle of Geonosis[src]

A Forward Command Center (FCC) was a mobile command station used by the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars.[1]


From the FCC, a clone commander and his Jedi General would command their troops and direct the battle. It was a small, circular platform that allowed clone troopers to monitor the battle.[1]

Forward command centres were small enough to be air-lifted onto the battlefield by LAAT/c gunships, though were nevertheless fully-equipped tactical command centers.


Jedi Master Yoda and Commander CRC-09/571 were stationed in the first Republic FCC during the First Battle of Geonosis. Here, CRC-09/571 informed Yoda that the forward positions of the clones were advancing on Separatist forces. Yoda's order to target the nearest Core ship was relayed to the artillery units from the centre.[1] Although the centre lacked weapons, it was heavily guarded by two Republic gunships and many AT-TEs.

A similar centre was used by Obi-Wan Kenobi during the Battle of Muunilinst.[2]
