The 221st Mechanized Assault Group was a battle group that was part of the Galactic Empire[2] and subsequently served the Imperial Remnant during the Imperial Civil War[3] after the Empire dissolved in 4 ABY.[4] The unit fielded light blue century tanks with augmented defenses and blaster modifications.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

A 221st Mechanized century tank miniature labeled as a "TIE Crawler"—another name for the century tank—was featured in the Ground Assault expansion of the Star Wars PocketModel TCG,[2] released in 2007.[5] The miniature's base stand was printed with an an attack value of zero, representing that it had nothing to increase its chance to hit a target. Its defensive values, however, were higher than those printed on most other units of its kind.[2]
