History[edit | edit source]
A unit of clone scout troopers was in the 41st Elite Corps, led by Clone Commander Gree. They wore camouflaged colors while fighting in the Battle of Kashyyyk during the Clone Wars. A number of scout troopers were also under the command of Jedi Luminara Unduli and Quinlan Vos during the Battle of Kashyyyk to help defeat Trandoshan slavers.
Equipment[edit | edit source]
Clone scout troopers were equipped with highly advanced plastoid armor, though they wore mainly a body glove on the neck, upper leg, and lower arms. They also had wider visor plates that allowed a larger visual area. They usually were armed with either DC-15A blaster rifles or DC-15Ss, they also use the DC-15x sniper rifle. The armor would be camouflaged to blend into the surroundings on forest and swamp worlds. They would be assigned two vehicles: BARC speeders for mounted reconnaissance duty and AT-APs for attacking and defending. Using BARC speeders could make them look very similar to BARC troopers, some of which also wore a form of clone scout armor.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
The game Star Wars: Battlefront II uses a variation of the clone scout trooper as a sniper unit on the planets Kashyyyk and Felucia. The variant scout trooper armor is also available in Capture the Flag mode when fighting for the Republic on Mustafar.
