The 41st Stormtrooper Legion, originally known during the Clone Wars as the 41st Elite Corps, was a famed unit in the 9th Assault Corps that was under the command of Grandmaster Yoda, Jedi General Luminara Unduli, and Commander Gree. Despite its Clone Wars-era name, it was actually a legion and led by a senior clone commander. The 41st contained many different variants of troopers including AT-RT drivers, scout troopers, and BARC troopers.

VehiclesEdit

Many of the troops in the 41st utilized many vehicles such as All Terrain Recon Transports (AT-RTs), BARC speeders, Infantry Support Platforms (ISPs), All Terrain Attack Pods (AT-APs), and A6 Juggernauts.

HistoryEdit

From the start, the 41st Elite Corps was made to specialize in patrolling and operating on alien planets in extreme conditions at odd times. They worked with aliens so much, that their commander, CC-1004, adopted the nickname, "Gree", after an obscure alien species, a species that only a person who studied aliens would know of.

Uba IVEdit

In 21 BBY, a small force of troopers led by Commander Gree traveled to Uba IV, where they assaulted a group of octuptarra droids, while virus-filled gas surrounded them.

DinloEdit

Later that year, the 41st Elite Corps led by Gree fought in the Battle of Dinlo, where they were pinned by a numerous group of battle droids. Improcco Company, along with Jedi General Etain Tur-Mukan helped them evacuate. Soon, the 41st Elite was granted an absence of leave for Coruscant as a morale booster.

Second Battle of GeonosisEdit

The 41st Elite Corps played a key role of taking back Geonosis in the Second Battle of Geonosis. Archduke Poggle the Lesser had built a new droid factory there and was producing droids to support the Confederacy of Independent Systems. The Jedi leaders would infiltrate the building and blow it up, while Torrent Company and the 41st would engage the forces in frontal assault. Eventually, with the combined force of the two units and the Jedi, the Republic won and the factory blew up, along with the Geonosian leader Poggle the Lesser captured.

Rodia and Nute GunrayEdit

A small attachment of the 41st Elite Corps flew down to the surface of Rodia to retrieve Separatist Viceroy Nute Gunray. They transported him to the cruiser Tranquility in a Consular-class cruiser, where they would be taking him to Coruscant. After an encounter with a group of B2 Super Battle Droids and Asajj Ventress, Gunray escaped and many troopers of Green Company were killed.

KashyyykEdit

The 41st's forces on Kashyyyk

In 19 BBY, the 41st Elite Corps was sent to their last mission on Kashyyyk, along with Jedi Grandmaster Yoda. While fighting alongside the valiant Wookiee warriors, they received Order 66 from Chancellor Palpatine. Being loyal to the Galactic Republic over the Jedi, the clone troopers did not hesitate to turn on their commanders. While Jedi Yoda and Quinlan Vos escaped, Luminara Unduli was wounded[1] by Commander Faie. Quinlan Vos later killed Faie when Faie and his men attemted to capture him in the thick forests of Kashyyyk. After this, the 501st came to help and Kashyyyk fell to the new empire.
