Clone marines

Clone marines were a clone trooper variant that served in the Grand Army of the Republic's navy during the Clone Wars. The marines were tasked with warding off Separatists boarding parties on Republic vessels as well as boarding enemy ships. On some occasions, the marines would land a space transport in an enemy hangar and deploy from there or use jetpacks to fly through space and land on the ship itself.

History[]

Clone marines were elite clone troopers that were deployed in the Clone Wars through the Republic Navy. In 19 BBY, during the Battle of Coruscant, Jedi General Saesee Tiin deployed clone marines to board and sabotage incoming Separatist ships.[1] In the assault, the clone marines boarded and commandeered the Separatist Providence-class carrier Prosperous and utilized the carrier's turret against incoming Separatist ships.[1] The battle ended in a Republic victory, with Chancellor Palpatine being rescued from Separatist forces.[2]

Armor and Equipment[]

The clone marine's weapons consisted of a DC-15A blaster rifle, a PLX-1 rocket launcher, a commando pistol based on the design of a DC-15S blaster carbine, and V-1 thermal detonators. This infantry unit would enter an enemy ship and would either capture or critically damage essential systems on that ship. On boarding parties, they would be more reliable, due to their quick sharpshooting and automatic DC-15A blaster rifles, than a clone pilot armed with a blaster pistol. The marines were also equipped with jetpacks to allow for propulsion in the vacuum of space.[1]
