With so much interest in Havoc Squad, I thought it might be fun to show some pictures of the squad from the game. The CO (would be you) changes but the team stays the same. I have also attached a link to a Player who has made a pretty nice page on Havoc Squad.



From Wookieepedia:

Havoc Squad, also known as Havoc Squadron, was an elite Republic Special Forces squad of troopers in the army of the Galactic Republic, who fought against the Sith Empire during the Great Galactic War. Originally known as infantry squad 326, Havoc Squad soon gained its name under the leadership of its commander Jace Malcom, and it was later led by Malcom's executive officer Jek Kardan, Kardan's protege Harron Tavus, and another commander. Havoc Squad saw action on many fronts throughout the war, from Ord Mantell to the Battle of Alderaan, and even after the Treaty of Coruscant was signed, the commandos of Havoc Squad continued to combat Sith threats during the resulting Cold War.

HistoryEdit"We must fight—to victory, or death—for the Republic!"
―Havoc Squad's commander, Jace Malcom — Listen (file info)[src]
Havoc Squad's creation was part of the larger introduction of Galactic Republic special forces commandos following the departure of the Jedi from Coruscant for the planet Tython. The squad saw action in many Cold War hot spots, including the civil war on Ord Mantell and the Battle of Alderaan. Led by the brave commander Malcom, Havoc Squad helped reclaim Alderaan from the forces of the Sith Empire under the leadership of the Sith Lord, Darth Malgus. During the battle on Alderaan, Havoc Squad fought and killed numerous Imperial Troopers, Assault Droids and Sith alike, though the squad was considerably outnumbered. During the battle, Satele Shan arrived to aid Havoc Squad in combating Darth Malgus' Sith forces, slaying a number of Sith Warriors before defeating Malgus in single combat, effectively allowing the Republic to emerge victorious from the guerrilla conflict.

DefectionEdit

Eventually, the squad fell under the command of Harron Tavus who led them during numerous engagements. This saw them face numerous skirmishes against the elite Shadow Fist unit of the Imperial Military.

A noted incident emerged when the squad was sent by General Garza to Ando Prime to cut off an Imperial offensive. The squad encountered more enemy soldiers than expected and were forced to call for extraction. But before Garza could get a rescue operation going, the Republic Senate shut it down. Garza had sent the squad to Ando Prime without the Senate's consent or knowledge, and the senators would not allow her to risk re-igniting war with the empire. The squad was left stranded in enemy territory, though they managed to return to the Republic. However, the incident left a dark scar on the team with many of its members believing that they were betrayed by the Galactic Republic. Thus, they planned to defect to the Sith Empire and were stationed on Ord Mantell when they were making their final preparations.

At the time, they were joined by a new recruit in the team who was unaware of Tavus's intentions. Eventually, the Squad initiated their plan though Tavus offered the new recruit to join them before they departed Ord Mantell and their service to the Republic. Afterwards, the recruit was made the new head of Havoc Squad and given the task of recruiting new members into the squad.

The new Havoc SquadEdit
In the Cold War, the team was tasked with combating the Imperial threat and hunting down the renegade former members of the squad. At this time, the Special Forces unit was directed by General Garza during their operations. In their travels, Havoc recruited defected Imperial Sergeant Elara Dorne and assault droid M1-4X into the squad, eventually tracking down all the traitors. Garza then promoted Havoc's CO to the rank of captain.

Havoc was soon called upon to extract an SIS agent on Tatooine, who had vital information on an Imperial superweapon codename Gauntlet, a powerful hyperspace cannon. While coordinating a joint military offensive, Garza required Havoc to be up to full strength with the needed specialists to destroy the Gauntlet. To that end, she dispatched Havoc Squad to recruit explosives expert Tanno Vik on Balmorra and technician Sergeant Yuun on Hoth, as well as extract the Safecrackers squad on Quesh. Participating in the assault, Havoc boarded and sabotaged the Gauntlet, completely vaporizing the superweapon. Upon returning to Coruscant, Garza commended Havoc's actions and promoted each member.

Unfortunately, their victory was not without consequences. Imperial General Rakton declared war against the Republic and captured the heads of state of many Republic-aligned worlds to allow Imperial forces to bypass their borders. Havoc stormed the station where the hostages were being held and freed them, earning Rakton's ire.

Garza soon dispatched Havoc to allocate forces from Belsavis, Voss and station A-77 to turn the tide of the war. Unfortunately, a paid Imperial agent, Senator Grom Zian, under Rakton's orders, launched a sham inquiry into Havoc's activities to get the squad suspended. Luckily, the SIS had gathered evidence proving Zian's Imperial ties, allowing Havoc to return to the frontline. The squad soon faced off against Rakton on Corellia and defeated him. Havoc was then personally commended by Supreme Chancellor Saresh.

EquipmentEdit"What is it Havoc Squad says? "Superior numbers can't compare to superior training.""
―Grand Moff Rycus Kilran[src]
Havoc Squad's soldiers made use of Republic trooper battle armor, with red-orange colored markings adorning the plates. In addition, bandoleers and pauldrons were available accessories for wear with their armor. The squad made use of a number of heavy weapons including assault rifles, hand-held missile launchers, portable blaster cannons similar in appearance to the much later Clone Wars-era Z-6 rotary cannon, and thermal detonators, along with sidearm blaster pistols and combat knives.[2]



Feel free to comment.





A Fan Art. Fantastic I think.

That's awesome. Thanks for posting these. I've never seen these before. Havoc Squad has a lot of different looks?

In the game as you progress, you pick and choose your armor. Your team is always the same, meaning as you progress, you meet them and they join you or whoever plays the CO. They get specific Havoc Armor as they level up with you but you can always replace it with other/better armor in the game. Not all the "Trooper" armor is "Havoc" armor. The "Havoc" armor has the squad logo on one of the shoulders, helmet, or chest. The last picture of the White/Orange helmet is of an "Outcast" helmet with the "Havoc" symbol on it. The helmet type is "Outcast" which goes along with a certain line of Outcast Armor but only a few have the "Havoc" logo on them.

Did I confuse you enought yet?

The Outcast helmet is basically the "Hope Tailer" helmet, but the visor has a band that goes around the back of the helmet.

That drawing, while cool, doesn't appear to match any of the armor in the game. Looks more like an amalgamation between SWTOR and Clone Wars armor. Still, I like it.

I agree. The Outcast helmet is very close to the Havoc helmet in the trailer. It's a little shorter from top to bottom if you look at them both next to each other. I am still thinking of making a wrap around visor for my Havoc helmet to see what it looks like.

The fan art picture is just that, cool drawing. None of the armor is in the game.

I would be flattered if other people added Havoc photo's and info to my thread. It might be cool to have one place with tons of info.

Just an idea.

Now I'm getting in the mood to complete the Trooper story... Razz

I've already completed the Smuggler and Jedi Knight, and now working on the Sith Inquisitor for a change of pace... Then I think I'll start on my dark side Trooper.

As awesome as the Trooper armor looks, I still have to give my love to the Smuggler. Not to mention that I have the most stylish Smuggler... ever! Laughing

Smugglers definitely the funniest story. Agent story is really good as well.
Trooper is a good story but every act kinda feels non-connected imo.

I love the Old Republic armors. Now, a third company is making the Havoc armor with a 3D printer. Hopefully, this category will continue to attract interest.

I have the TZA armor and have learned so much with making many mistakes putting it together. The picture above is me photo shopped into the blue background.
