This.

If you're talking about when the peak of it's military strength was, then apparently it's the early KotOR era.

Swtore says that the early Kotor period was actually fairly weak militarily due to an overreliance on the Jedi. After Kotor they established a massive military that could stand on it's own. In fact, it states that before the Jedi Civil War, most of the Republics military was a loose collection of fleets from each individual member planet. And that they possessed very few infantry that had shitty equipment.

This was why the Mandalorian's and Revan's unified forces crushed the Republic so easily.

The Jedi Order was at it's combative peak, not the Republic itself. Though interestingly the Sith Empire was of the same magnitude as the Galactic Empire

Any time they can go a few millennia without Sith, really.

Militarily, I'm not entirely sure. Maybe TOR, where despite being cut in half it's had a whole lot of time to build up.

The 1000 years after the seventh battle of Ruusan.

That rings true with Exar Kun's speech, yeah.

Then I suppose either SWTOR era Republic or Clone Wars Republic.

The "Golden Age of the Republic" is probably the golden age of the Republic, yes?

Not sure what there is to discuss really.

Militarily, it seems to be the KotOR era by virtue of KotORCG.

That being said, Lucas did make clear that the PT era was the golden age of the Jedi.

The Kotor CG stated that Revan's era was even better that.

?

Maybe I missed something, but what puts the OR military over other ones? Last I checked, the Republic military was pretty much in shambles...or well least up till TOR but even there I don't think it's that far and above greater than any other. Infact even still you have later eras having better tech, a wider variety of troops, vehicles and so on.

I know, but you can't exactly override the creator's intent. To be fair, they only referred to the KotOR Jedi's militaristic superiority, whereas Lucas seemed to refer to the Order just being in its overall prime (though he did reference swordfighting, so eh).

Which really doesn't make much sense to me.

The KotoR had like half the territory of the PT era and much smaller ships.


Though, I suppose it could be talking most proportionally powerful, i.e. the time it was most militarized, but that still seems kinda off.



Also notably, that campaign guide was written before TOR existed.

It doesn't make much sense period, just by comparison you could tell there is a great difference between the OR military of Kotor to later ones.

Even TOR while they are a step up in a few areas, are still lacking.

Heck, the *new* Republic arguably had one of the stronger militaries. An indecisive government once the Empire was gone, but a pretty good-sized force that had experience against a peer foe, and had some sweet capital ships and fighters.

Golden Age of the Galactic Republic = Rise of the Empire
Golden Age of the Jedi Order's combative prowess = TOTJ/KOTOR
Golden Age of the Jedi Order over-all = Rise of the Empire
