Clone WarsEdit

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.[3]

Galactic EmpireEdit

The division later returned to Mimban as the Galactic Empire sought to pacify the world and quell a rebellion that had formed there. Corporal Han Solo was a member of the 224th Imperial Armored Division and fought with them before he defected from Imperial service.[2]


Under the Empire, the 224th Imperial Armored Division utilized All Terrain Defense Turrets as mobile artillery, Y-45 armored transport hauler airborne transports, and both wet-weather gear stormtroopers and swamp troopers as specialized swamp terrain infantry.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The 224th was first mentioned in "Rookies," the fifth episode of the canon animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars' first season,[3] which originally aired on October 24, 2008.[4] It was later depicted as an Imperial military unit in the 2018 film Solo: A Star Wars Story.[2]
