- "Minimal casualties, maximum effectiveness. That's us."
- ―Broadside, on Shadow Squadron
"Broadside" was the nickname of an experienced clone trooper pilot who served in Shadow Squadron, a Galactic Republic starfighter squadron under the command of Jedi General Anakin Skywalker during the Clone Wars.
Attack on the MalevolenceEdit
During the Malevolence campaign, Broadside and Shadow Squadron were briefed by Admiral Wullf Yularen and Jedi General Anakin Skywalker aboard the Resolute. There, Skywalker informed Broadside and his fellow pilots that their mission was to attack the Malevolence by targeting its bridge and take out the commander, General Grievous. Following the briefing, Broadside and Matchstick assured Jedi General Plo Koon that their squadron would be prepared for their mission, stating that they maintained minimal casualties and maximum effectiveness.
Following Grievous' attack on a medical convoy in the Ryndellia system, Broadside, along with the rest of Shadow Squadron, Skywalker, and Koon took the Balmorra Run in order to reach the Kaliida Shoals Medical Center before the Malevolence.
Some time later in the Clone Wars, Skywalker utilizes the Shadow Squadron once again, this time to defend against Grievous' fleet in an attack on Kamino. Broadside is there with the Shadow Squadron, piloting his Y-wing starfighter alongside Skywalker and his squadron.
