Clone Shield Wall

A shield was a broad piece of armor carried on the arm that was used as a defense against blows or hurled objects. During the Clone Wars, the clone riot troopers of the Coruscant Guard used riot shields in conjunction with a baton.[1] Later, clone troopers utilized a type of shield in the Battle of Ringo Vinda. The shield was made of a blaster-proof material. It was strong enough to withstand and deflect strong sustained hits from blaster fire, but was also light enough to be used in conjunction with a DC-15A blaster carbine.[2] After the rise of the Galactic Empire, the riot gear used by the stormtroopers of the Empire also included a shield.[3] The Wookiee warriors of Kashyyyk used wooden battle shields that had a reverse teardrop shape.[4] Maz Kanata's collection of antique items included a shield fashioned of an unknown silvery metal.[5] The Kyuzo warriors wore helmets that doubled as shields and as missiles.[6]
