Airborne Troopers, also known as Paratroopers, were specialized variant of Clone Troopers in the Grand Army of the Republic. They wore advanced armor and a sensor-loaded helmet with filtration systems. As their name implies, these troopers were specifically trained and equipped to perform high-altitude drops from LAAT Gunships.
EquipmentEditDuring the Clone Wars, Airborne Troopers wore an experimental version of the Phase: II Clone Trooper armor as well as the normal Phase: II Clone Trooper armor; each set had a bandolier, extra ammo pouches, and special helmets. They wielded a variety of weapons which included: DC-15S blaster carbines, DC-15A blaster rifles, DC-17 hand blaster pistols, and, sometimes, a DC-15X sniper rifle.
