An armor battalion was a formation of the Imperial Army.

Organization[edit | edit source]

An armor battalion was comprised of a breakthrough armor company, two attack armor companies, a repulsorlift company, and the battalion headquarters for an optimum combination of mobility and firepower. However, the armor battalion was designed for assault operations, and had no staying power to fight a fixed defense. The battalion numbers fluctuated depending on whether the battalion was equipped with light tanks or heavy tanks. Heavy battalions numbered a thousand men, supported by 53 repulsortanks and 55 repulsorcraft, while light battalions numbered 1,096 personnel, 93 tanks and 55 repulsorcraft.[1]

Armor battalions could be augmented by the addition of one repulsorlift company, two more breakthrough armor companies, and an attack armor company.[2]

History[edit | edit source]

During the Galactic Civil War, an armor battalion was deployed to the Atrivis sector. Bern Durasha was assigned to the battalion.[3]
