Clone scout troopers were specialized clone troopers who were active during the Clone Wars. They were most commonly used as scouts for the Grand Army of the Republic and saw use at the Battle of Kashyyyk in the final years of the war.
Battle of KashyyykEdit
During the final year of the Clone Wars, the 41st Elite Corps - led by Grand Master Yoda, Jedi General Luminara Unduli and Clone Commander Gree - was deployed to the planet of Kashyyyk. While fighting in the Battle of Kashyyyk, clone scout troopers were deployed to aid the Wookiees in their fight against the Separatist droids. As Confederate forces stormed the beach, scout troopers were tasked with defending Kachirho, the capital of Kashyyyk. Using barricades and trenches as cover, the scout troopers and Wookiees engaged the battle droids in a brutal confrontation. A number of scout troopers acted as sharpshooters along Tree Kachirho whilst many more lined the top of the seawall. During the battle, commander Gree received Order 66 from Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine, who understood the importance of the contingency and decided to proceed with the order. He approached Master Yoda and the Wookiee Generals, atop a high command post overlooking the battle, and he and a clone scout trooper prepared to fire. However, the Jedi felt a great Disturbance in the Force, as Order 66 was carried out across the the galaxy, and beheaded both clones before they could execute him.
Age of the EmpireEdit
After the Galactic Empire was established, clone troopers transitioned into the Imperial Stormtrooper Corps and clone scout troopers became Imperial scout troopers, who would later see use in the Galactic Civil War, most notably at the Battle of Endor.
