"With your command of the Third Army, I feel we are well on our way to achieving victory."
Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, to Obi-Wan Kenobi[src]

The Third Systems Army, or simply the Third Army, was one of ten Systems Armies of the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. The Third Systems Army contained units such as Parjai Squad, Ghost Company, the 2nd Airborne Company, the 442nd Siege Battalion, the 501st Legion, Squad Seven and the 7th Sky Corps.

High Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi and Marshal Commander Cody were given overreaching command of the units comprising the Third Systems Army, though individual units' day-to-day operations were still commanded by their respective Commanders and Jedi Generals. The Third Systems Army was the most well-known systems army due to containing numerous elite clone units, such as the 501st Legion, the 212th Attack Battalion and Squad Seven. Units in the Third Systems Army were often deployed in major battles and invasions.
