The 442nd Siege Battalion was a clone trooper battalion in the Grand Army of the Republic. They were notable for besieging enemy fortifications during the Clone Wars. The clone troopers of the 442nd Siege Battalion sported green markings on their Phase II clone trooper armor and were typically equipped with DC-15A blasters. The battalion utilised vehicles such as the Infantry Support Platform and All Terrain Recon Transport. They were deployed to the Trade Federation world of Cato Neimoidia during the final hours of the Clone Wars.
Behind the scenesEdit
The 442nd clone trooper armor coloring is an exact recolor of the 212th Attack Battalion's markings. A 6-inch figure of the trooper was released in late 2016 with three other clone troopers, a clone trooper from the 212th Attack Battalion, a clone trooper from the 501st Legion, and a clone shock trooper. The set was originally released via Entertainment Earth. Hasbro had previously released a version of the trooper in the Star Wars: The Saga Collection line; however, this falls under the Legends continuity.
The figure's description on Entertainment Earth is as follows: "Crush Cato Nemoidia! These lean mean green biological fighting machines were sent to crush the Trade Federation stronghold during the final hours of the Clone Wars."
