The 282nd Regiment was a unit of the Grand Army of the Republic. They were equipped with AT-AP walkers and TX-130 Saber-class fighter tanks marked with red stripes to designate their regiment affiliation.


The fighter tanks of the 282nd Regiment were generally manned by a crew of three clone troopers that included a pilot and gunner. Equipped with an enhanced targeting system for its turret mounted laser cannon and dual heavy cannons, and reinforced with armor plating for added defense, a fighter tank of the 282nd was more accurate, but less maneuverable, than its counterpart in the 96th Regiment. Heavily armored AT-AP walkers added troop support to supplement the Republic fighter tanks in accomplishing mission objectives.


The 282nd Regiment was seen fighting the Separatist Droid Army on Geonosis during the early part of the Clone Wars.
