Clone cold assault troopers were a specialized division of clone troopers within the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars, equipped with modified armor and equipment to withstand the harsh climates of arctic planets.
As the name indicates, cold assault troopers were specially trained for battle and survival in extremely cold regions. Their specialized armor was specifically designed for protection to the wearer in extremely low temperatures and to allow for effective operations within this environment.
Clone snowtroopers under Commander Mag were deployed on the icy world of Orto Plutonia, where they were tasked with testing subzero gear such as the Freeco bike. After the outpost was wiped out by the Talz, another clone cold assault task force from the 501st led by Captain Rex was sent to investigate, accompanied by Jedi Generals Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
