"This next one goes out to the Mud-Jumpers of the 224th, slugging it out on Mimban. Keep your heads down and your seals tight, boys."
―Hologram VJ — (audio) Listen (file info)[src]

The 224th Imperial Armored Division, previously the 224th Clone division under the Galactic Republic, was an Imperial Army unit in service during the reign of the Galactic Empire.

History[edit | edit source]

Clone Wars[edit | edit source]

During the Clone Wars, it was known as the 224th Division[2] of the Grand Army of the Republic. A detachment of the 224th known as the Mud Jumpers fought on Mimban alongside The 501st Legion under Jedi General Laan Tik. During the fight, General Tik was killed and the clones were forced to fall back.[5]

While in combat on Mimban, the 224th's Mud Jumpers were given a song by a Hologram VJ of the Grand Army of the Republic's broadcast.[4] The 224th Division fought alongside Iasento's tribe against Separatist forces, which had invaded the planet to exploit its mineral resources.[2]

Galactic Empire[edit | edit source]

When the Republic reorganized into the Galactic Empire in 19 BBY, the planet once again experienced an incursion from an external enemy: their former allies. The Imperials returned to the once-allied planet as conquerors, seeking to procure the abundant mineral resources that existed on the swampy world.[2]

By 10 BBY, the 224 Armored Division consisted of Swamp troopers who had been conscripted from local planetary forces and integrated into the Imperial Army. While these were gradually being replaced with stormtroopers, regular army and stormtrooper personnel fought together. The 224 Armored Division took part in trench warfare and skirmishes against the Mimbanese.[2]

Organization and equipment[edit | edit source]

Under the Empire, the 224th Imperial Armored Division utilized All Terrain Defense Turrets as mobile artillery, Y-45 armored transport hauler airborne transports, TIE fighters and both wet-weather gear stormtroopers and conscripted swamp troopers as specialized swamp terrain infantry. Swamp troopers were considered to be the latest iteration of the Clone Wars-era Mud Jumpers.[2]

The division was based at Camp Forward, a temporary Imperial headquarters situated in a disputed wilderness zone. The camp's facilities included tents, prefabricated structures. The division also employed medics including Specialist Gillen Finders and Sergeant Mattiso Trodu. In line with Imperial interpretations of medical oaths, the division's medics only treated humans and had a reputation for firing upon Mimbanese natives.[2]
