A clone commando

This is a Class 4 article.

Clone commandos, also referred to as Republic Commandos and later Imperial Commandos, were an elite class of clone trooper. Unlike regular units, they were commanded under the Special Operations Brigade, and carried out special missions, including infiltration, sabotage, espionage, assassination, recon and counter-terrorism. They often worked in squads that consisted of four troopers, each of which had a different specialty. Each squad had a sergeant who served as the leader, though commandos could also be given other ranks, such as captain.


Soon after the Kaminoans began secretly working on the Republic's clone army ordered by the Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas, the Kaminoans felt that the regular clone infantry would not be very well suited in some more intense situations. As a result, they began work on a branch of clone commandos which were designed to be better suited in certain situations that required more experience than the average clone trooper had.

The only known unit was sent to Yorn Skot to rescue Jedi Master Treetower.[2] The commandos wore standard Katarn-class armor and possessed DC-17m Interchangeable Weapon Systems.[2]
