Umbaran Soldiers of the Umbaran militia

Umbaran Soldiers were members of the Umbaran militia who served their homeworld as militants.

History[]

The Umbarans were highly trained in combat, which proved effective during the Republic assault on their homeworld. They caused heavy casualties on the Republic side using the cover of darkness[source?] which continuously covered Umbara.[1]

Equipment[]

They were encased inside a protective suit which covered their faces.[2][3][4][5] Their helmets fed its wearer a potent gas mixture that kept them ready for combat, improving their reflexes and aggression level.[6] They utilized their standard blasters[7] but also made use of other advanced weapons such as the millicreep[8] and the Umbaran hover tank.[9]
