Clone jetpack troopers were a variant of clone trooper trained for aerial combat, most commonly through the use of the JT-12 jetpack.[7][8] They were armed with the BlasTech DC-15A blaster rifle, DC-15A blaster carbine and DC-17 hand blaster as well as missile launchers, including Smart rockets.[7] Clone jetpack troopers were present during the First Battle of Geonosis as well as the Defense of Cato Neimoidia and Battle of Anaxes. The 501st Legion had Jetpack troopers within its ranks, the armor of the troopers was marked in blue to designate their unit affiliation.[3] Following the execution of Order 66, the transformation of the Republic into the Empire and the phasing out of clones in favor of stormtroopers, the jetpack troopers were replaced by Jumptroopers.

At least one clone jetpack trooper participated in the First Battle of Geonosis, the first action of the Clone Wars, against the Separatist Droid Army.[1] At least one squad of jet troopers from the 501st participated in the defense of Cato Neimoidia.[3] Later, both jetpack troopers from the 501st and the 7th Sky Corps took part in the Battle of Anaxes.[2] 501st jump troopers were again present at the Battle of Yerbana to assist the 212th Attack Battalion.[6] During the last major CIS offensive of the Clone Wars, the Battle of Coruscant, vacuum-suited jetpack troopers boarded enemy vessels to capture their bridges.[5]
