Clone troopers were the soldiers of the Galactic Republic. They fought alongside the Jedi Order during the Clone Wars but turned on them when Darth Sidious activated Order 66. They were gradually replaced by Stormtroopers of the Galactic Empire.

Characteristics

Grown at an accelerated rate and raised in the laboratories and facilities of Kamino, the clone troopers were trained throughout the first ten years of their lives to become one of the most efficient military forces in galactic history. Bred for the sole purpose of combat, the clones were indoctrinated with unwavering obedience to the Galactic Republic and—more specifically—their Commander-in-Chief, the Supreme Chancellor.

For roughly three years, the clone troopers fought to defend Republic sovereignty against the Separatist rebellion. Throughout the conflict, the Jedi Generals served as commanders and generals of the Grand Army and, thus, they serve alongside their clone soldiers on many occasions.

History

A group of clones

Some years before the Invasion of Naboo, Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas believed the galaxy was going to fall into war but was kicked from the Jedi Council for his view. He went on to contact the Kaminoans and acting without the council's permission he comissioned an army of clone soldiers.

Sifo-Dyas was soon killed afterwards by the Pyke Syndicate who were hired by the Sith. Darth Tyranus took over the project following the Invasion of Naboo and recruited Jango Fett to be the template of the clones.

Obi-Wan Kenobi tracked Jango Fett to Kamino in 22 BBY and discovered the project. Later on Yoda traveled to the planet himself and recruited the Clones who were ready for battle and took them to Geonosis to rescue the Jedi strike team there. The Battle of Geonosis marked the beginning of the Clone Wars and Jedi led the Clones into battle against the Separatist army.

The 501st and 212th teamed up to arrest the fallen Jedi Master Pong Krell during the Battle of Umbara.

Throughout the war the Clones continued to serve their Jedi Generals, split into units such as the 501st Legion and the 212th Battallion. A few Clones showed disloyalty such as Cut Lawquane and Slick which showed that even though they were clones they had some differences due to personal experience and training.

Late in the war, 501st trooper CT-5555 "Fives" came across a conspiracy which ended up being Order 66 in the works. He was killed before he could properly come up with proof but was able to warn CT-7567 "Rex". Rex, CC-3636 "Wolffe" and Gregor all had their inhibitor chips removed.

Order 66 is activated.

Following the Battle of Coruscant, Order 66 was activated and Darth Sidious came to power. Clone Troopers across the galaxy executed their Jedi masters. Rex, Wolffe and Gregor did not obey due to their chips being removed and went into exile.

Clone Troopers served as the first army units of the Galactic Empire until Stormtroopers were created to replace them. The final known Clone Troopers to be produced and trained were the Inquisitor Troopers that followed Darth Vader and his Inquisitors.

Ranks

Clone Marshal Commander

These troopers had a higher rank than regular Clone Commanders. There was very few of them in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars.

Clone Commander

Clone Trooper commanders at the very beginning of the Clone Wars were identified by their yellow markings. Later on the Clones could customise their armor and the commanders took on the various colors of their legion. Commanders and sometimes Marshal Commanders were some of the army's finest troops.

ARC troopers were elite troops within the army. Their training made them more advanced then regular clones. They tried out the phase II prototype armor earlier on therefore being the first to use it. A few ARC troopers were trained from the start but as the clone legions and battalions were established, troopers that showed incredible skill, bravery and success in battle were given the rank of ARC and received special training to enhance their skills. ARCs often used twin blaster pistols as their weapons of choice.

Clone Commando

Clone Commandos were elite clones that received special training and programming as commandos. While ARCs worked better inside their battalion, Commandos often worked in squads of four or a few more while they were active. Clone Commandos kept their same armor for the entire war and didn't change to a phase II variant and were allowed varying color markings as they didn't belong to a Clone Unit.

Adult cadets were split into squads and following their final test they were assigned to either a legion or are selected to be a special unit such as a ARC Trooper.
