Shortly after the rise of the Empire, the Wookiees of Kashyyyk were enslaved. While many Wookiees who escaped captivity became Wookiee Freedom Fighters, others left their homeworld to join the efforts of The Rebel Alliance.
These strong, elite warriors provided backup for Rebel SpecForce Commandos during battlefield raids, but they were just as likely to be the muscle of Special Ops mission groups working for Alliance Intelligence.
In addition to using their natural strength to subdue opponents hand to hand, they carried a traditional Bowcaster for sniping, a Grenade Launcher for dealing with clusters of opponents, and an R-4 Recon Droid (Linked to a Comlink) for scouting nearby areas. The R-4 Recon Droid is very simple- essentially operated by remote control- but it carries a powerful Explosive Charge for dealing with hidden enemies. (Other models carried powerful beacons that allowed Capital Ships to lock on and bombard the area with Turbolasers.)
