The 221st Mechanized Assault Group was an Imperial Remnant battle group. This unit fielded light blue century tanks with augmented defenses and blaster modifications during the Imperial Civil War, which took place after the Galactic Empire dissolved in 4 ABY.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
A 221st Mechanized century tank miniature labeled as a "TIE Crawler"—another name for the compact assault vehicle—was featured in the Ground Assault expansion of the Star Wars PocketModel TCG, released November 14, 2007. 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, and it also featured a blaster icon, representing the blaster equipment upgrade.
