    The Grand Army of the Republic, nicknamed GAR and also known as Grand Army or Clone Army, was a major branch of the Old Galactic Republic Republic Military that composed clone troopers, an army of elite soldiers created from the genetically altered template of the Mandalorian bounty hunter Jango Fett. Bred in secret within the cloning facilities of the planet Kamino, the Grand Army was officially formed by Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine at the behest of the Galactic Senate in response to the Separatist Crisis which threatened to divide the galaxy between the Old Galactic Republic and the newly born Confederacy of Independent Systems.
