The 181st Armor Division was an armored division of clone troopers in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems.[1]

The division was identified by various combinations of green markings on their Phase II clone trooper armor and consisted of standard clone troopers as well as clone sharpshooters, clone trooper officers, and heavy weapons clone troopers. Respectively, the soldiers of the unit were armed with DC-15A blaster carbines, Valken-38xs, DC-17 hand blasters, and DC-15A blaster rifles or DC-15LEs.[1]

The 181st Armor Division utilized infantry, All-terrain vehicles such as All Terrain Reconnaissance Transports, and HAVw A6 Juggernauts that allowed the 181st to conduct safe transport in harsh environments and reinforce Republic regiments that were stuck in remote locations.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The 181st Armor Division first appeared in Star Wars Battlefront II released by Electronic Arts in 2017 and were the default clone trooper skin for Kashyyyk. The clone trooper skin only appears by default on Kashyyyk on the large and small-scale versions of the multiplayer map, and in all modes.[1] The 181st Armor Division was not named until an update for the game on February 27, 2019.[2]

With the update, the appearance of the 181st clone troopers was also slightly modified in that the green coloring was slightly darker, different patterns were added, and equipment was modified.[1] The 181st Armor Division was originally intended to be named the Mid Rim Garrison prior to the release of the update.[3]
