"Mission accomplished, sir. The Chancellor is safe."
―A clone shock trooper after storming the Chancellor's Office[src]

Clone shock troopers, also referred to as shocktroopers or guardsmen, were the clone troopers that formed the Coruscant Guard during the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Secretly bred apart from the other clones, they acted as security police for Coruscant, the capital world of the Republic, and also as bodyguards for Republic representatives. Some of them were trained specifically for riot control and served as urban peacekeepers. After the Republic was replaced by the Galactic Empire, they evolved into a new generation of shock troopers.

HistoryEdit

Ten years after the Invasion of Naboo, an open war broke out between the Galactic Republic and a separatist movement known as the Confederacy of Independent Systems. The Grand Army of the Republic was made up of clone troopers, most of which were created on the planet of Kamino. However, certain specialized clones were also bred on Coruscant, the capital world of the Republic, in the utmost secrecy.[2] Those shock troopers formed the Coruscant Guard,[1] tasked with the protection of the Galactic Senate's rotunda and other governmental facilities, as well as serving as bodyguards for diplomats.[2] When the Clone Wars came to an end, Supreme Chancellor Palpatine abolished the Republic, turning the democratic union into the Galactic Empire.[3] In time, the clone soldiers were replaced by the stormtroopers, and the guardsmen of Coruscant evolved into a new generation of shock troopers.[4]

EquipmentEdit

Initially, the shock troopers wore the same Phase I armor as the other clones, with distinctive red markings.[5] Later in the war, the Phase II armor was introduced. The red color scheme of the shock trooper continued, with a majority of the armor now covered in red.[3]

ApplicationEdit

The clone shock troopers received special training for deployment in urban environments, which gave them a high proficiency in close quarters combat.[2] They served primarily as security police for the Republic Senate,[1] its buildings,[6] and as prison guards.[7] They also performed duties such as bodyguards for Republic officials[8] and as urban peacekeepers with some troopers trained specifically for riot control.[9]
