The Tatooine garrison[7] was a stormtrooper garrison of the Galactic Empire's Imperial Army. Stationed on the desert planet Tatooine during the Galactic Civil War, the garrison often worked with the 68th Legion.[1] The garrison often used dewbacks, as they found them more favorable to operate than speeders in the desert terrain,[6] but was a small force for much of its existance.[8]

In 0 BBY,[9] the garrison was[7] reinforced by a detachment sent by the Sith Lord Darth Vader to search for two droids, R2-D2 and C-3PO,[5] thereby giving Tatooine the full attention of the Empire.[8] Although the Alliance to Restore the Republic launched a campaign to root out the Imperial garrison on Tatooine,[1] the Empire would retain its presence until the aftermath of the Battle of Endor, a loss so great it made the Empire retreat from Tatooine.[10]
