"The general felt a redeployment of this fleet would would increase our defensive perimeter."
―Admiral Wullf Yularen, to Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi about Skywalker's fleet[src]

Skywalker's fleet was a task force commanded by Jedi General Anakin Skywalker during the Clone Wars. Initially he commanded the starships from the Resolute. By the time of the Battle of Ringo Vinda, the task force was part of the Open Circle Fleet.

HistoryEdit

Battle of ChristophsisEdit

During the Clone Wars, Anakin Skywalker's task force[1] was dispatched to Christophsis to resupply Senator Bail Organa's refugee camp[9] at the Minister of Sustenance's compound in the eastern exurbs on the planet's surface.[19]

The Confederacy navy under Admiral Trench, however, established a blockade above the planet. Jedi General Skywalker's task force were under orders to await the arrival of Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi the Negotiator. Skywalker ignored orders, and began his attack on the blockade, although the Separatist fleet was able to hold the line against Skywalker's task force, inflicting heavy casualties on Skywalker's starships and the Pelta-class frigates. As Trench's flagship, the Invincible, rained fire upon the task force, Skywalker decided to order the engines on his vessel, the Resolute, to full power and push past the Invincible and reach the surface. Kenobi arrived before his plan could be put in place, and convinced Skywalker to withdraw his forces behind the moon of Leesis.[9]

After Skywalker broke through Trench's blockade,[9] Skywalker sent his task force to a Haven-class medical station to resupply. Republic Admiral Wullf Yularen was then ordered by Master Yoda to drop off a messenger, Ahsoka Tano, to Generals Kenobi and Skywalker with vital information. After dropping off Tano, Yularen and the Resolute was forced to retreat when Separatist reinforcements arrived. With reinforcements from Yoda and Admiral Wurtz, Yularen and the task force were then able to force the Separatist fleet to retreat from Christophsis.[8]

Campaign in the Outer RimEdit

"Our spies were right, General. The Jedi have positioned a fleet beyond the planetary rings."
―An OOM command droid, to General Grievous[src]

Skywalker's task force was then sent to protect Bothawui from General Grievous' fleet towards the end of the Grievous's Campaign in the Outer Rim. Skywalker's forces stopped the Separatists from taking the strategically important world.[2] The task force was then alerted by the destruction of the Rishi Station on the Rishi moon of Grievous' attempt on Kamino.[20] The task force attempted to capture Dooku when Kenobi allowed Skywalker to be captured. However, Dooku was able to escape and crash landed on Vanqor only to be captured by pirates.[21]

The task force later assisted in rescuing what was left Master Aayla Secura's and Commander Bly's forces. Skywalker, his apprentice Tano, and Captain Rex were able save Secura, Bly and several other troops before Secura's cruiser was destroyed. Unfortunately, their Consular-class cruiser was damaged and was forced into hyperspace before it could dock with the Resolute. The task force was able to finish the battle and focus on locating Skywalker's and Secura's forces.[10] Despite this defeat,[22] the task force was able to find Skywalker, Secura, Tano and their forces on Maridun.[23]

ComplementEdit

Anakin Skywalker's task force was comprised of at least three Venator-class Star Destroyers during the Battle of Bothawui, which included the flagship Resolute.[10] During the Battle of Ryloth the task force deployed the Resolute, the Defender, and the Redeemer,[6] and also had at least one Consular-class cruiser which was destroyed following the Battle of Quell.[10]

The Defender and the Redeemer were both destroyed during the Battle of Ryloth,[6] and the Resolute was eventually destroyed in the Battle of Sullust.[15] By the invasion of Scipio, the task force was led by another flagship and consisted of at least two Venators and at least two Arquitens-class light cruisers.[17]
