Covert Ops Clone Trooper

A Covert Ops clone trooper.

The Covert Ops clone troopers were clone troopers serving with the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars.

They were standard clone troopers, drawn from rank-and-file formations, who had shown some potential for "dirty work", and were trained by Null ARCs N-10 and N-5 in commando tactics. However, the "dirty work" they were sent out to do wasn't always as clear-cut as expected: covert ops troopers were occasionally sent to eliminate other clones who had chosen to desert from the Republic and live their own, independent, lives.

One of the few known operations of this type was on Gaftikar when CT-6200/8901 and CT-0368/7766 were deployed to eliminate ARC A-30. This two-man team was KIA by RC-1136, who was mistaken for A-30 when undercover and attacked.

The Covert Ops Clones served in squads with up to three or two men. Many utilized modified DC-15A blaster rifles and DC-15S blasters. This type of clone trooper was one of the most secretive in the Grand Army of the Republic.

Behind the scenesEdit

CoOpsTrooper

The action figure version of the trooper.

This type of trooper made its first appearance as a StarWarsShop.com exclusive action figure. The backstory of the Covert Ops clone trooper was meant to be developed by fans in Round 6 of the What's The Story? feature of Hyperspace. However, according to Pablo Hidalgo, "A winning entry was selected, but it became apparent that projects in the works tread too closely to the lore being established in the CO troopers, that the call was made to pull it. Better that than introduce an instant-continuity error." The backstory of the covert ops troopers was established in True Colors.
