This article is about the clone trooper rank. You may be looking for the generic military rank of lieutenant.

"Hmm... learned something today, have you lieutenant, hmm?"
"I think we all did, General."
Jedi Master Yoda and Clone Lieutenant "Thire"[2]

Clone Lieutenant was a rank in the Grand Army of the Republic held by clone trooper officers who commanded platoons of thirty-six troopers[1] and held the unit position of platoon leader.[3] The four lieutenants of a company were in turn led by their respective Clone Captain. Standard[1] Phase I[4] lieutenants wore clone trooper armor featuring four blue circles on the left breastplate as well as a stripe of blue down the length of each arm, vertically up the middle of the helmet and laterally around the visor.[1]

One notable Clone Lieutenant was CC-4477, also known as "Thire," who served in the Coruscant Guard as a clone shock trooper. During the Clone Wars, he accompanied Jedi Master Yoda to Rugosa in order to persuade King Katuunko to ally with the Galactic Republic.[2] Similarly, "Trap" was a clone lieutenant who led Tango Company on a mission to escort a Republic medical frigate back to the Ord Cestus medical station. Whilst en route to the station, fellow clone trooper "Scythe" was infected by a Geonosian brain worm, which led to the infection of all other clones on board, including Trap.[5]

Clone trooper pilots could also hold the rank of lieutenant, and one clone pilot lieutenant served as a pilot on a gunship during the Battle of Teth.[6]

  3. TCW mini logo.jpg Star Wars: The Clone Wars – "Carnage of Krell" exhibits Waxer as being the platoon leader of a platoon. According to Star Wars: Complete Locations, platoons in the Grand Army of the Republic were led by a Clone Lieutenant. Therefore, the Clone Lieutenant in a platoon held this unit position, so Waxer must have been a lieutenant during the events of the episode.
