When Palpatine said he had "a legion of my best troops" on Endor, was he speaking literally? —Silly Dan (talk) 22:42, 18 May 2006 (UTC)

Needs to be removed/edited "Under the Empire of the Hand, it appears that the 501st Legion had been reorganized, with the reduction of the standard company to forty men; it is unclear exactly what this indicates about the overall strength, but if the companies were all indicated by individual letters of the Aurebesh like Aurek Company, the overall strength may have been no more than 1,360 men."

This is unconfirmed information on a proper page. Surely it should not be included? As an aside, since most Star Wars military formations are based on Earth's own militaries, it is more likely that individual battalions have several companies (eg. A to E) rather than a total of only 34 small companies per Legion
