- "Brigade on alert!"
- ―Colonel Brenna to her troops
A brigade was a large military infantry formation. The Grand Army of the Republic's special forces was the Special Operations Brigade, and the Clone Youth Brigade was composed of young clone cadets. Standard clone troopers were also organized into brigades, and were led by a Jedi Commander. Senator Mon Mothma, serving as Chancellor of the Alliance to Restore the Republic, believed that a single brigade of clone troopers could penetrate a planet's orbital defenses and conquer the world.
The Confederacy of Independent Systems utilized maintenance brigades within the CIS Navy. These brigades were deployed after the Subjugator-class heavy cruiser Malevolence was critically damaged during the Battle of the Kaliida Nebula.
The Galactic Empire continued the use of brigades, with one such brigade being under the command of Colonel Brenna. A resistance group allied with the Rebel Alliance during the Coruscant civil war went by the name of Anklebiter Brigade. Years later, the Empire's successor state, the First Order, also utilized brigades, with one brigade being led by a First Order major.
