"We're on your tail, General Kenobi. Set S-foils to attack position."
―Odd Ball during the Battle of Coruscant[4]

Clone trooper pilots,[1] also known as clone pilots,[6] were clone troopers that, due to having particularly good reflexes and spatial awareness, were spotted early and brought into pilot training. The clones piloted various ships[7] and ground vehicles. Over the course of the Clone Wars, pilots were placed within vehicles like the Low Altitude Assault Transport-family, V-19 Torrent starfighters,[8] Clone Z-95 Headhunters,[9] ARC-170 starfighters, and Alpha-3 Nimbus-class V-wing starfighters.[4]


"Sir, we're taking heavy fire."
"Close the blast shields, lieutenant! Get us under those guns!"
―Hawk, who served as a clone pilot with the rank of lieutenant, and Jedi General Anakin Skywalker in a gunship[8]

An AT-TE Driver

Clone trooper pilots were also able to possess military ranks. Hawk held the rank of Clone Lieutenant during the Battle of Teth,[8] Jag held the rank of Clone Captain,[10] and Odd Ball held the rank of Clone Commander.[11] Clone pilots who were tasked with controlling an All Terrain Tactical Enforcer were known as AT-TE Drivers.[12]

Throughout the Clone Wars, pilots wore at least three types of pilot armor. Phase I pilot armor was mostly the same as their trooper counterparts, but their helmet lacked a fin. While not all AT-TE Drivers adopted it,[8] some such pilots wore the armor with grey and gold markings.[12] During the days of Phase II armor, two variants came to exist.[9][4] One variant had identical body armor to the Phase II armor, but had a different helmet.[13] The second variant had a blue bodysuit, and plating covering the torso, as well as minor plating covering the knees and elbows. The helmet was open.[4] Clone pilots served the Galactic Empire as Imperial Starfighter Pilots.[5]
