"Master Sifo-Dyas requested the most powerful army in the galaxy. We have worked with only the best shipbuilders to fulfill that request."

The Republic Navy, also called the Republic fleet, was the naval branch of the Grand Army of the Republic. The Navy transitioned into the Imperial Navy after the Republic was transformed into the Galactic Empire.

History Edit

Clone Wars beginning Edit

Republic Navy first came on the scene during the Battle of Geonosis twenty-two years before the Battle of Yavin. Acclamator-class warships and Low Altitude Assault Transports were used to carry troops and vehicles on the planet, in an effort to help Jedi forces run there to save Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala. The battle was won by the Republic thanks to its new Grand Army and the Clone Wars began.[3]

Some time after the Battle of Geonosis, in the Battle of Christophsis Venator-class Star Destroyers were deployed instead of Acclamator-class ships, engaging Separatist capital ships that were blockading the planet. A stealth ship prototype was tested in the battle, managing to destroy Admiral Trench's flaghip, the Invincible.[4] In the next battle on the world of Teth squadrons of V-19 Torrents operated together with Jedi starfighters.[5]

Subsequent campaigns Edit

In the Mission to Rugosa Jedi General Yoda traveled aboard a refitted Consular-class cruiser.[6] The Separatist superweapon known as the Malevolence destroyed some Pelta-class frigates, used as medical transports by the Republic.Afterwards Jedi General Anakin Skywalker led a squadron of Y-wing starfighters with the purpose of destroying the Malevolence, but he initially failed, succeeding only with his boarding of the ship.[7][8] Nu-class transports were employed in several battles in this period, such as on Christophsis,[5] Ryloth[9], Rishi moon[10], Vassek's third moon[11] and Florrum[12]. General Skywalker has often used a G9 Rigger freighter named Twilight since the Battle of Teth, in which he stole the ship.[5]

In the Battle of Malastare the Republic used many starfighters to bomb Separatist ground forces marching against them; these fighters consisted of Y-wing and ARC-170 starfighters.[13] In the following Battle of Geonosis the Republic deployed a great amount of naval forces, using again the Low Altitude Assault Transport carriers deployed in the rescue of the Jedi team on the same planet.[14] Also Pelta-class frigates were deployed to help the injured troopers.[15] In the Battle of Saleucami, fought after the capture of Eeth Koth, Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi's fleet included for the first time an Arquitrens-class light cruiser,[16] a cross between the Venator-class Star Destroyer and the Consular-class cruiser. In the battle was also used a Jedi ambassador shuttle for the first time.[16] Large naval forces were employed in the Defense of Kamino, when General Grievous stroke clones's home, including ARC-170 and Y-wing starfighters and Venator-class, Acclamator-class and Arquitens-class ships.[17] This kind of ships were used back in the Battle of Sullust.[18] Modified LAAT/i's were deployed in the Battle of Lola Sayu to evacuate a Jedi rescue team run to save Jedi General Even Piell.[19]

Clone Wars ending Edit

Since the Battle of Umbara Republic has used Clone Z-95 starfighters as main starfighter forces.[20] A lot of naval forces surrounded the space station Valor during the Republic strategy conference.[21] Jedi General Anakin Skywalker and Jedi Commander Ahsoka Tano piloted Eta-2 Actis-class interceptors in the Defense of Cato Neimoidia; this kind of starfighter was used by Jedi often in the last part of the Clone Wars. A great formation of Republic capital ships attacked the ring station surrounding the world of Ringo Vinda, including ARC-170, Y-wing and Clone Z-95 starfighters, a Jedi ambassador shuttle, a Nu-class shuttle, Republic frigates, Arquitens-class, Acclamator-class and Venator-class capital ships.[22] The gunship Havoc Marauder was used by Clone Force 99 in the Battle for Anaxes[23] and in the Mission to Skako Minor.[24]
