A trooper of the 2nd Airborne in specialized armor.

Clone paratroopers, also known as clone airborne troopers, were clone troopers who were specially-trained for high-altitude drops using special parachutes and equipment.


These airborne troopers were developed at some point during the Clone Wars and served within the Grand Army of the Republic. At the time, they were involved in fighting against the Separatist Droid Army. In the final days of the Clone Wars, the 212th Attack Battalion deployed clone airborne troopers on the planet Utapau during a battle when General Grievous's base was discovered on that planetoid.

501st Airborne

An airborne trooper in the 501st Legion.

In Star Wars: Battlefront II, the clone sharpshooter is wearing airborne trooper armor, although in the film, the airborne troopers are seen with the standard Republic's DC-15S. Clone Commander Keller and another trooper also wore airborne trooper-style armor. Hasbro has released action figures of airborne troopers from the 212th Attack Battlion, the 501st Legion, and the 187th Legion.
