"It's settled, then. Yoda will take a battalion of clones to reinforce the Wookiees on Kashyyyk."
―Mace Windu, to the Jedi High Council[src]

The 41st Scout Battalion was a battalion within the 41st Elite Corps of the Grand Army of the Republic. In the closing stages of the Clone Wars against the Separatist Alliance, the battalion was dispatched to Kashyyyk, where they participated in the Battle of Kashyyyk.


"What about the droid attack on the Wookiees?"
"It is critical we send an attack group there immediately."
―Ki-Adi-Mundi and Mace Windu, during a Jedi High Council meeting[src]

The battalion participated in the Battle of Kashyyyk.

The 41st Scout Battalion was a battalion of the Grand Army of the Republic.[2] During the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Separatist Alliance following the Battle of Coruscant, the Jedi High Council settled on sending an attack group to the planet Kashyyyk to reinforce Wookiee forces against a Separatist invasion. It was decided that the 41st Scout Battalion of the 41st Elite Corps would be dispatched, and shortly after, the unit assembled at a staging area on Coruscant as equipment and vehicles were loaded unto a Venator-class Star Destroyer and Jedi General Yoda arrived to command the battalion.[1]

The 41st Scout arrived on Kashyyyk and took defensive positions in Kachirho, a major city on Kashyyyk, and unloaded vehicles and equipment alongside the Kachirho Wookiee Militia. While on Kashyyyk, the battalion was led by Jedi Generals Yoda, Luminara Unduli, and Clone Commander CC-1004 "Gree." Eventually, the Battle of Kashyyyk began and the battalion defended the beachhead against Separatist forces. Members of the battalion positioned themselves on the beach itself as well as city structures and the large trees surrounding the city. During the battle, Supreme Chancellor Palpatine of the Republic, secretly the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Sidious, initiated Order 66, a directive that labeled the Jedi as traitors.[1]

Commander Gree received the message from Palpatine in the command center, and he and another clone trooper moved into position to kill Yoda. Yoda, however, sensed the betrayal of Palpatine and the deaths of his fellow Jedi across the galaxy, and beheaded Gree and the trooper before they could fire their blasters. The two Wookiees beside Yoda, Chewbacca and General Tarfful then helped Yoda leave the city. After the battle was over members of the battalion, which included ARF troopers on AT-RTs, hunted for Yoda in the night but failed to stop him from escaping the planet.[1]


The 41st Scout Battalion was a sub-unit of the 41st Elite Corps of the Grand Army of the Republic. It was under the command of Jedi General Yoda, Jedi General Luminara Unduli, and Clone Commander CC-1004 "Gree." The battalion was composed largely of Advanced Recon Force troopers and clone scout troopers in green camouflaged clone trooper armor.[1] The 41st Scout specialized in reconnaissance and warfare over difficult terrain, and as such, wore Phase II ARF armor for greater mobility and flexibility. Their helmet featured sunshield, wider visor, and the overall shape helped to secure wider vision while traversing jungle-rainforest environments.[2] They also utilized HAVw A6 Juggernauts, All Terrain Attack Pods, Infantry Support Platforms, BARC speeders, and All Terrain Recon Transports. When the battalion was deployed to the planet Kashyyyk, they were transported there via a Venator-class Star Destroyer.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The 41st Scout Battalion first appeared, albeit unnamed, in the theatrical 2005 Skywalker saga film Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith.[1] The name of the organization was first revealed to be the 41st Scout Battalion, in a community transmissions post on the Star Wars Battlefront II website.[3] Like the 41st Ranger Platoon, the 41st Scout Battalion shares the number of its parent unit, the 41st Elite Corps.[2]
