Grand Army of the Republic and the Republic Navy

For the longest time the Galactic Republic did not possess any centralized military, the Judicial Forces were responsible for the protection of the Galactic Republic. The crisis created by the Trade Federation on Naboo prompted some within the Galactic Republic to call for greater expansion of a "Republic military" and not rely so much on the planetary and sector defense forces. A series of events eventually culminated in the formation of the Grand Army of the Republic, the largely clone army of the Republic and the formation of a proper Republic Navy.

OOC Note: Please note that SW:G is not a game of numbers, this is here to provide an overview for writers to gain an idea of relative strengths and ideas.
