Biker Advanced Recon Commandos, also referred to as BARC troopers, were special forces clone troopers of the Grand Army of the Republic that were trained to ride BARC speeders across difficult terrain or dangerous battlegrounds. BARC troopers were equipped with modified clone trooper armor that directed their attention forward to avoid distractions, which could be dangerous to them at high speeds. During the final days of the Clone Wars, BARC troopers under the command of Jedi General Stass Allie and Clone Commander Neyo were present on the planet Saleucami. Whilst out on a speeder bike patrol, Neyo was issued Order 66 by the Supreme Chancellor of the Galactic Republic, Sheev Palpatine, which forced him to open fire on his superior. As a result Allie, like most of the other Jedi across the galaxy, was killed by the troops.

BARC troopers control BARC speeders on the planet Saleucami.

By the year 19 BBY,[4] BARC troopers in the 91st Mobile Reconnaissance Corps were stationed on Saleucami during the Outer Rim Sieges of the Clone Wars. Whilst riding across the planet's terrain on a BARC speeder, Clone Commander Neyo was issued Order 66 by Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine of the Galactic Republic.[3] Forced to comply as a result of their behavioral modification biochips,[5] he and a wingman opened fire on Jedi General Stass Allie's speeder, destroying the vehicle and killing the Jedi.[3]


BARC troopers wore a modified variant of standard clone trooper armor, with a helmet that directed attention forward in order to avoid distractions that could be dangerous at high speeds.[6] Clone troopers on BARC speeders in armor similar to, but not exactly the same[7] as that of Phase II era BARC troopers,[3] were active within a battle on Saleucami[7] between 21 BBY and 20 BBY.[8]

  8. Obi-Wan 4 establishes that the battle of Saleucami that Mekedrix fought in took place after the Battle of Ryloth, which ended in "Liberty on Ryloth," but before the Devaron massacre, which occurred in "Monster." Per the reasoning here, the events of "Liberty on Ryloth" can be dated to 21 BBY, while the events of "Monster" can be dated to 20 BBY. As such, the battle of Saleucami must occur between those two years.
