Ewoks. Simply speaking the name arouses countless emotions among Star Wars fans. For some, the bear-like creatures that appeared in 1983 for the first time in Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi (19459004) are part of the franchise's rich tapestry. Others consider the Ewoks a plague and would prefer it if they did not exist at all. [Somefaneditsby The Return of the Jedi completely banish the Ewoks for shouting.) They are the most controversial inhabitants of the Star Wars universe on this site by Jar Jar Binks. But, you know what? They are also the most tactical fighting force.
In a series full of battles and combat units – after all, they are basically war films ̵
The Empire can project tremendous power on it both the land and in space to defend its imperial interests. But they are terrible too.
One of the foundations of warfare is fire and maneuver: all weapon systems and all personnel are dubbed to a close schedule of destruction, to pinpoint the enemy's weakness, fire it up and beat it on an exposed flank or back , This includes the use of indirect and direct fires as well as forces to fix the enemy in one place and others to trap or exploit a breakthrough.
Our friends in the Imperial Army and Navy never encountered a problem they could not solve with a bold frontal attack. There is no subtlety in imperial tactics; Throw Stormtroopers and Tie Fighter at the problem until there is no problem. They do not bother deploying indirect fire or coordinating tactical air support. The synchronization of the battlefield implies that "everyone is online and shooting in the same direction?". It is ridiculous.
The Ewoks manage to overwhelm and completely defeat a technologically superior force simply by conventional military tactics.
You could rightly say: If the Empire is so bad at war, why is it the best Bantha in the galaxy? That's easy. The Rebel Alliance is even worse. They have virtually no bottom game, minus some special units here and there. Their fragmented freedom fighters with small arms have no chance against Imperial armor. Hoth alone showed that the rebel forces had no idea how to fight ground, as they did not place a single obstacle along the enemy's only approach road. They did not develop an integrated fire plan and did not coordinate their air support with infantry defense. In short, there is no need to develop tactics if your enemy relies on hope as the main strategy. No wonder, then, that the Imperial garrison on the forest moon of Endor is terribly unprepared to face the Ewoks. As others have already emphasized, the Ewoks seem to portray their insurgent gardening variety or guerrilla force. George Lucas himself said he had been inspired by the Vietnam War. The Ewoks are also the only fighters in Star Wars that represent multi-domain operations. They force their enemies to respond to a variety of threats simultaneously, throw them off balance and allow the Ewoks to take the initiative. Let's dissolve that.
The Ewoks are exposed to a heavily armed force of assault and client forces with multiple light armor platforms. The Imperial Force has just captured the special unit of the allegedly elite Rebel Alliance, whose job it is to shut off the shield generator that protected the second iteration of the Death Star – conveniently located on the small, wooded moon of the planet Endor.
