The 187th Legion was a clone trooper legion within the Grand Army of the Republic. They were lead by Jedi General Mace Windu and a clone commander who wore Airborne Trooper armor. The legion was distinguished by their purple coloring, signifying the color of Windu's lightsaber.

History Edit

Battle of Dantooine Edit

In 21 BBY, four months after the First Battle of Geonosis,[1] the 187th Legion was deployed to the planet of Dantooine, where they fought Separatist battle droids.[2] The droids, however, had a specialized tank called a seismic tank. The tank hammered into the ground, sending a shockwave across the planet's surface, killing several clones and droids alike. If the clones were not killed in the shockwave, they fell into the pit that the tank cause and once it hit again, they would be crushed.[3] Jedi General Mace Windu managed to survive the shockwaves and jump onto and cut into the tank. Once inside, he slashed through the controls and destroyed it.[4] The unit took heavy casualties during the battle.[4] Tango Company was deployed to assist with medical relief, but were delayed due to a Geonosian mind worm.[5]

Battle of Coruscant Edit

In 19 BBY, the 187th Legion were on Coruscant when the Separatist attacked the planet and captured the Chancellor, Sheev Palpatine. The Legion fought on the ground alongside The Muunilinst 10 and other units of the Special Operations Brigade.[6][7] The battle on the ground was won, eventually, with only minimal casualties to the 187th Legion.

Armor and Equipment Edit

The troopers of the 187th Legion possessed Phase I and Phase II armor, as well as Airborne armor. They also possessed standard clone weapons, including DC-15S blaster carbines, DC-15A blaster rifles, and DC-17 hand blasters. The trooper's armor was also colored purple if they had markings, which was in respect of their Jedi General's, Mace Windu, lightsaber.
