Lancer Battalion

Clone lancer troopers were a clone trooper variant that were equipped with Aratech 105-K speeder bike and a Verpine power-lance, specializing in high-speed combat.

History[]

In 22 BBY, a large detachment of clone troopers were deployed to the Battle of Muunilinst under the command of Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi. The Lancer Battalion were deployed alongside the 91st Mobile Reconnaissance Corps and The Muunilinst 10 on a multi-front assault on the planet. While 91st were the predominant ground force, the Muunilinst 10 were deployed to sabotage a Separatist cannon. Following the sabotage of the cannon and the devastating ground assault, bounty hunter and Separatist leader Durge engaged in battle with a squad of IG Lancer droids, destroying a majority of the SPHA walkers.[1] Kenobi, in response, ordered the Lancer Battalion into battle, with both contingents destroying one another until only Kenobi, a few clone lancers, and Durge were left. Eventually, Kenobi defeated Durge in combat, at least temporarily.[1]

Armor and Equipment[]

The lancer clones were equipped with standard white Phase I clone trooper armor with a brown poncho worn around their neck. The lancers were also equipped with an Aratech 105-K speeder bike, which were occasionally armed with heat seeking missiles.[1][2] The troopers were only armed with a singular Verpine power-lance and were one of the few military units with melee experience.[1]
