||"Tucker" was the nickname of a clone pilot who flew in the Republic Navy's Blue Squadron during the Clone Wars. In 22 BBY, Blue Squadron was part of the Republic task force sent to liberate the planet Ryloth from Confederate control. During the ensuing battle, Tucker and Blue Squadron—under the command of Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano—made their way toward the enemy's flagship, attempting to break the Confederate blockade orbiting Ryloth. However, Confederate Vulture droids attacked Tucker and Blue Squadron, and after inflicting some casualties on the Republic fighter group, the Vultures proceeded to attack the Republic capital ships. Jedi General Anakin Skywalker and Admiral Wullf Yularen then ordered the squadron to retreat, but at Tano's behest, the starfighters continued the assault on the Confederate flagship. With the Republic fighters heavily outnumbered, Tucker was shot down and killed.
