Clone SCUBA troopers also known as clone subtroopers, were a variant of the clone troopers who served in the Grand Army of the Republic. They were deployed underwater, and carried special equipment and weapons that could function when submerged.


Like all clone troopers, SCUBA troopers were born on the planet Kamino, where they trained for under water combat. In 21 BBY, the Confederacy of Independent Systems began using Manta Droid Subfighters and other aqua droids, allying the Confederacy with Quarren and other aquatic species. It became obvious that the Republic needed to use aquatic soldiers and weapons to combat these new foes. When the Quarren Isolation League joined forces with the CIS, it caused tensions between the QIL and the Mon Calamari people. The Republic chose to intervene for the sake of the loyal Mon Calamari people. An army of SCUBA troopers followed Kit Fisto to the Mon Calamari sea. On the way down they met a army of droids in battle. The SCUBA troopers fought the droid army on both foot and mini sub mounts, destroying the Manta droids and at least one Separatist sub-carrier.[1]

In 20 BBY, the SCUBA troopers were deployed once more in the Second Battle of Mon Calamari, following failed negotiations between the Mon Cala and Quarren about the appointment of the new king. Jedi General Anakin Skywalker and Senator Padme Amidala returned to the surface with Mon Cala Captain Gial Ackbar to inform the Jedi Council, who directed Jedi General Kit Fisto and Jedi Commander Ahsoka Tano to the planet, alongside a unit of SCUBA troopers led by Commander Monnk. During the assault, the unit suffered major casualties, as did Mon Cala forces. In a retreat, Skywalker, Amidala, Ackbar, Fisto, Tano, Monnk, Prince Lee-Charr, and Senator Mena Tills attempted to hide at the bottom of the ocean.[2]

Following their retreat, the surviving forces called the Council for reinforcements, who directed additional SCUBA troopers and Gungan soldiers to the water-world. With the additional forces, however, the Republic forces struggled in the battle, with many Gungans, Mon Cala, and SCUBA troopers being either killed or captured, with only Tano and Lee-Charr escaping the imprisonment.[3] The two devised a plan to infiltrate the makeshift prison camps and rally the combined forces of the Mon Cala, Gungan, and Republic troops. Lee-Charr also believed that the Quarren leader Nossor Ri would switch to their aid. After a failed attempt, the Separatist forces arranged a public execution for the Jedi, Senators, Ackbar, and the Prince. However, Nossor Ri, following the assertion of power by Separatist Commander Riff Tamson, betrayed the Separatists and supplied weapons to the prisoners, which allowed the battle to be a Republic victory.[4]
