The Fifth Battle Group, also Fifth Fleet or Fifth Defense Task Force, was the first battle group of the New Republic Defense Fleet comprised entirely of New Class starships.

Operational History

The fleet was commissioned 16 ABY and placed under the command of General Etahn A'baht. A'baht commanded the battle group from Intrepid. After its creation, the Fifth Battle Group caused a political stir amongst some New Republic senators who feared that it would be used as a weapon of conquest.

The Fifth Battle Group saw heavy action in the Koornacht Cluster following the Yevethan purge, and took losses in the Blockade of Doornik-319, and subsequent Battle of N'zoth. Following the battle, the Fifth oversaw the pacification of N'zoth and the broken Dushkan League.

It was joined by the New Republic Third Fleet in Admiral Ackbar's campaign against the Imperial Remnant in 18 ABY, culminating in the Battle of Anx Minor. After A'baht left the fleet, its command was taken up by his friend, Kiles L'toth.

During the Yuuzhan Vong War, the Fifth Battle Group was initially positioned between Kothlis and Bothawui. It was tasked with the defense of important Core systems after the fall of Fondor. It later became the Galactic Alliance Fifth Fleet.

Task Forces

The Fifth Fleet, before the Battle of Bessimir, contained 106 starships and was divided into five approximately twenty-one vessel task forces, although operational constraints caused their numbers to fluctuate. Each task force included one Nebula-class Star Destroyer or Endurance-class fleet carrier at its point, two Majestic-class heavy cruisers, two Defender-class assault carriers, four Sacheen-class escort frigates and five Warrior-class gunships. It can be assumed that a number of Agave-class pickets and at least two Hajen-class fleet tenders were also assigned to each task force.

After the disastrous Battle of Doornik-319, they were reinforced by 133 more warships from the New Republic Third Fleet, New Republic Fourth Fleet, and the New Republic Second Fleet.
