Jetpacks, also known as Jump Packs were personal aerial transportation devices that allowed the operator to fly into and through the air with great mobility. Mandalorian armor was equipped with jetpacks, and was used by some clone troopers in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars.

Multiple military forces employed soldiers equipped with jetpacks, with trooper variants including the clone jetpack trooper, the Galactic Empire's jumptrooper, the First Order jet trooper,[3] and the Sith Eternal's Sith Jetpack Trooper.

Jetpack models included the JT-12 jetpack, the Z-6 jetpack, and rocket packs.


An Imperial Jumptrooper

Jetpacks were usually worn on the back and controlled by a wrist-mounted device. The Z-6 jetpack featured a missile that could launch from the top of the jetpack.[4] A variant was used by the various clone trooper units of the Galactic Republic's Grand Army during the Clone Wars.[5] Jetpacks could be used in "rocket mode," propelling them at great speeds, thereby making them a harder target for anti-aircraft systems.[6]

Notable uses[]

Bounty hunters such as Jango Fett[7], and later his son, Boba, used jetpacks in their various jobs.[8] Mandalorian factions such as the Death Watch used jetpacks against their enemies.[4] The Republic's Grand Army's clone troopers would use jetpacks to assist them in their missions.[5] Imperial jumptroopers used jetpacks during the Galactic Civil War.[3]
