An assault regiment was a formation of the Imperial Army.

History[edit | edit source]

One well known assault regiment was the 76th Assault Regiment. Their exploits during the Galactic Civil War made them very distinguished compared to other formations.[3]

Two armor battalions of 112th vanguard armor regiment and two battalions of imperial army infantry and stormtrooper was organized into an assault regiment called Battle Group Turak. General Maltaz commanded the unit during battle of Turak IV. But was killed and the entire ordeal was considered the worst defeat of 112th, against the rebel alliance.[4]

Some imperial officers disagreed with this view. And pointed to the fact that the alliance military had suffered the heavy losses during the engagement.[4]
