- "Far superior to battle droids, clone troopers formed the backbone of the Grand Army of the Republic. Bred from the genetic template of the bounty hunter Jango Fett, they represented the latest evolution in galactic warfare. The 212th Attack Battalion was renowned for engaging in full-frontal assaults and their use of siegebreaking tactics, often serving alongside the 501st Legion. Under General Obi-Wan Kenobi and Commander Cody, the battalion saw success in battles on planets such as Ryloth, Umbara, and Utapau."
