Are you serious? Clone paratroopers? -- SFH 01:35, 1 March 2006 (UTC)

Yep. Look at Parjai Squad or the 2nd Airborne Company.

  • I'm not questioning their canonicity. I'm asking why would a civilization as advanced as the Galactic Republic still have need of paratroopers? -- SFH 05:06, 1 March 2006 (UTC)

despite their "primitive" nature, paratroopers still provide a good tactical advantage, allowing the Republic to be able to insert troops behind battle droid columns and catch them in a pincer maneuver.

  • Hey, the Republic has many other specialized clone units; why not paratroopers? Admiral J. Nebulax (talk) 20:30, 1 March 2006 (UTC)

Exactly. Thank you admiral.

What do the paratroopers use to slow their fall? General Nai

Yeah. Some backmounted repulsorlift thingy with something that varys the heights where it kicks in. General Nai

There were clone paras at the battle of Utapau. Pity we didn't see them land. General Nai

Added section about repulsors, not parachutes, plus their appearance over Utapau. Incidentally, we do see Cmdr. Cody and some paras land in Utapau. They were jumping from a ledge, not some vehicle. Oh, and BTW, in The New Jedi Order: The Unifying Force, there are GFFA paras (in this case Page's Commandoes) who were the first organics in, just behind the YVHs. They are described as wearing environment suits and jet/repulsorpacks. Mention that somewhere, maybe in another article? 18:59, 2 September 2006 (UTC)

Main picture Edit

The main picture on this article is canonically incorrect- it is simply concept art for Republic Commando. Therefore, I will be changing the picture to something more relevant.--Xilentshadow900 22:23, 6 March 2006 (UTC)


Can we change it to airborne clone trooper?--PyRo 14:28, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

  • Why? —Grand Admiral J. Nebulax (Imperial Holovision) (Record of Imperial Service) Imperial Emblem 14:30, 2 May 2007 (UTC)
    • Such a title would indicate that these soldiers spent most of their time fighting in the air. These ones did, though. Unit 8311 14:33, 2 May 2007 (UTC)
      • Exactly, which is why we're not changing the title. Clone paratroopers did not fight in the air. —Grand Admiral J. Nebulax (Imperial Holovision) (Record of Imperial Service) Imperial Emblem 14:34, 2 May 2007 (UTC)
        • i know they fought on the ground its just Airborne clone troopers is what they are called on, that's why i was asking--PyRo 15:10, 3 May 2007 (UTC)
          • "Clone paratrooper" is the more correct name. —Grand Admiral J. Nebulax (Imperial Holovision) (Record of Imperial Service) Imperial Emblem 19:54, 3 May 2007 (UTC)
            • PyRo makes a pretty valid point. What the heck?!?! With advanced tech that's in the SW universe, they'd probably use some kind of repulsor lift device. Besides, they're 100% called airborne troopers. Look at all the hasbro merchandise. They call them AIRBORNE TROOPERS!!!! For god's sake- or whatever pagan's worship- do some more research!!!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!!!! tHIS REALLY IRKS ME. I am very passioNATE about this. --LtCol. JuiceStain 01:02, 8 May 2007 (UTC)
              • First of all, calm down. Second of all, no. "Clone paratrooper" is the more correct name, and therefore, that will remain the title of the article. —Grand Admiral J. Nebulax (Imperial Holovision) (Record of Imperial Service) Imperial Emblem 11:22, 8 May 2007 (UTC)
                • where are they refered to as paratroopers? because ive only seen them called that here.--PyRo 13:51, 8 May 2007 (UTC)
                  • The second source listed, for one. —Grand Admiral J. Nebulax (Imperial Holovision) Imperial Emblem 19:41, 8 May 2007 (UTC)
                    • okay im fine with the name then........but can you go to the discussion page for tie fighter pilot i posted a question thats been bothering me?--PyRo 12:03, 10 May 2007 (UTC)
                      • I posted a question needing an answer there. —Grand Admiral J. Nebulax (Imperial Holovision) Imperial Emblem 19:16, 10 May 2007 (UTC)
                      • Answered it... i should have been more specific--PyRo 13:03, 11 May 2007 (UTC)
                        • I apologize for the scene back there. Just trying to give my man PyRo some assisance. I wasn't exactly thinking straight. Next time I'll check the sources.... Thoroughly. --LtCol. JuiceStain 21:11, 12 May 2007 (UTC)
                          • And by the way, I didn't mean nothing by that "pagan" comment. I just recall hearing it recently at teh time of my writing and decided to put it in there for dramatic speech. --LtCol. JuiceStain 21:13, 12 May 2007 (UTC)

Wait...If They Are Paratroopers,They Would Use Parachutes,But They Don't.So Airborne Clone Trooper Would Be A Better Name(Note:Some Real Para Regiments Are Called Airborne Regiments,So It Make Sense)

  • Not necesarilly, many units in the real world use the "Paratrooper" name, even though they don't always use parashutes. They could use some form of glider, or maybe they do use parachutes, we just haven't seen them. Coincidentally, Omega Squad uses a from of parachute in Republic Commando: Hard Contact. Regular GAR forces probably do the same. Ciphe 23:13, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Connection with jet troopers? Edit

If they are apart of the sky corps then aren't they jet trooper? And they also use jetpacks?

Different Variations? Edit

If there is a Airborne Company, could there be airborne troopers in different legions?

Well, I don't think I need an answer anymore, because because on the Hasbro Episode 3 line, there is a 501st Airborne Trooper (also in Battlefront 2)

Missing info? Edit

  • Are there any missing equipment? I don't have the battlefront renegade squadrons game but i'm guessing there is more info in the game that we could add like equipment and missions, could some one add it?--ARC commander4 04:01, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

its really Edit

its really called an airboarn trooper not paratrooper i hace an action fig that has a coin and it states AIRBOARN TROOPER

  • Indeed they are, if you're in fact referring to "Airborne Trooper". It's also already part of the article. A word of advice: Try typing a little slower, and a little more clearly. It makes your comments easier to comprehend by other editors here. A once-over with spellcheck couldn't hurt either. ;) Bella'Mia 03:26, May 18, 2010 (UTC)

Medics? Squad LeadersEdit

They were also known to act as medics in battle. They might have carried bacta in battles. Where is the source? In the film we see a paratrooper calling for a medic, not administering help. Also in the film, not that I don't like paratroopers, I love them, but in the film they seem to lead squads or detachments unloading from LAAT/i's rather than as full paratrooper squads.Ciphe 18:19, July 16, 2010 (UTC)
