The 501st Legion, also known as the 501st Battalion during the Clone Wars and later known as "Vader's Fist" and the Five Hundred and First, was an elite unit of clone troopers commissioned by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine during the Clone Wars that later became a stormtrooper unit. Made up of units like Torrent Company, the 501st fought in many battles, such as the Battle of Teth and the Battle of Coruscant, becoming one of the most well-known legions. In 19 BBY, the 501st became Darth Vader's personal unit as he led them during Operation: Knightfall, in which the clones helped take down the Jedi, whom they believed to be traitors to the Republic.
Hey all! Time for a new update to get you guys excited for the mod :) Don't worry we may not have many updates, but we are working slowly.

Hey! Its been a while since the last update, so we got some news for you.
As you know, school has started for most of us. And mod progress has been reduced a little bit due to that, however we are still trucking along. We have put a decent sized dent in our model list regarding units. And we are still waiting on getting them all skinned and rigged.
And as a taste of that, we are going to give you a little peak at one of our units :)
This is the Trade Federation Cruiser. It is seen in Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter. It appeared on the level where you had to defend a cannon being built on Lok's moon. The model was made by Holybeast and textures are by Mobius13.
I kind of feel bad that I am mainly focusing on CIS units, and not Republic ones at the moment. Sorry Republic fans! You'll get to see some Clones and Acclamators in action soon enough ;)
Anyways, I believe that is it for now. Sorry it wasn't much. However, I want YOU, yes YOU, to vote on something. The design of the Munificent. Would you like it to look like:
Episode III style
or Star Wars: The Clone Wars style
The choice is yours! Enjoy!
