A Battle Group is a UNSC designation for a force of ships that is smaller than a Fleet. A Battle Group is roughly equivalent to a Covenant Task Force in terms of number of ships; however, a Task Force is far superior to a Battle group in terms of sheer firepower and technology.

A Battle Group is usually commanded by an Admiral, though there have been instances of smaller Battle Groups being led by Captains.[1] Each Battle Group is assigned a number,[2]or, when the number is not known, the Battle Group is referred to simply by its flagship. Battle Groups are also created on a temporary basis, with a specific mission or to accomplish a specific task.[3][4][5]

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

A battle group, also sometimes known as a battlegroup, was usually a specialized or regional unit of military forces.

History

It was most commonly used to denote groups of naval flotillas, commonly grouped fleets, and in a few cases, such as in the Republic Navy during the Clone Wars, referred to specific fleets themselves.

In the Confederacy of Independent Systems, the name was applied to units within ground armies, though these often had fleets attached to them for galactic deployment with which the name was used in conjunction.

The Galactic Empire used the term for both naval and army units.
