The 1st Sector Army was one of twenty Sector Armies in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. The army served as a reserve command along with the subsequent Sector Armies up to the 6th Sector Army.[1] Like all other Sector Armies in the Galactic Republic, the 1st Sector Army had one of the Republic's twenty Haven-class medical stations towed to them.[3] At the start of the Clone Wars, the Grand Army was organized into ten Systems Armies, with each being split into two Sector Armies and drawn from a specific area of the galaxy. The Sector Armies were responsible for the defense of their specific areas.[1]

As such, the 1st Sector Army belonged to the same Systems Army as another. Being a Sector Army, the unit[1] contained 147,456 clone troopers who were divided into four corps.[2] Corresponding to the other Sector Armies, it was attached to one of the twenty numbered fleets of the Republic Navy.[4]

Behind the scenes[]

Urquhart.[6]
