The Special Operations Brigade (SO BDE) was the special forces division of the Grand Army of the Republic, made up of clone commandos, clone assassins, Advanced Recon Commandos, and clone shadow troopers.

HistoryEdit

As the Clone Wars began, the Jedi Order formed the Special Ops Brigade to complete independent, special operation for the Galactic Senate, Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, and the Jedi High Council. Stationed with Arca Company Barracks, the Special Ops Brigade was led by Jedi General Iri Camas and later Jedi General Arligan Zey. When General Zey took command, the brigade consisted of 10,000 troops.[source?]

It was later reorganized as the Imperial Commando Special Unit.[1]

Command structureEdit

The Special Operations Brigades were commanded by Jedi General Arligan Zey. It consisted of ten Commando Groups, or battalions, by one year after the Battle of Geonosis.

  • Special Operations Brigade —20 Commando Groups (10,000 troopers plus support personnel), commanded by Jedi General Arligan Zey.[2]

Notable unitsEdit

Special ops variantsEdit

One notable exception was the Covert Ops clone troopers. They were elite clones of the GAR assigned to doing 'dirty work' that most clones would find questionable and unethical for the Republic. The Director of Special Forces ignored the existence of those clones for a long time and they were supposed to take order from the Office of the Supreme Chancellor.[3]
