The Flame trooper corps was a corps that served within the Grand Army of the Republic during Clone Wars. The unit saw action throughout the war, but specifically at the Second Battle of Geonosis under the leadership of Jedi General Ki-Adi-Mundi and Commander Jet.

History[]

The flame trooper corps was a unit that was created in 32 BBY with the creation of the Grand Army of the Republic.[1] The unit received specialized training to be equipped with BT X-42 heavy flame projectors, which were designed to shoot flames out toward enemy positions.[2]

In 21 BBY,[3] a set of troopers from the corps were deployed to serve within Commander Jet's unit, alongside Special operations clone troopers, to the Second Battle of Geonosis.[2] The unit, serving alongside the 212th Recon Division and the 501st Legion, was initially set to land at the rendezvous point, known as Point Rain. However, while en-route, a majority of Jet's unit and the 501st Legion were shot down, forcing them to crash and try to move toward Point Rain, while the 212th held out the best they could at the position.[2]

Once Jet and his unit rallied their remaining forces, the unit began moving back toward Point Rain, with a majority of troopers riding on the surviving All Terrain Tactical Enforcer. Eventually, they came to a cave that would not fit the tank, forcing the men to abandon it and walk through.[2] Once entering the cave, one trooper reported that there were wave-length frequencies within the cave. Soon thereafter, Geonosian soldiers began attacking the unit.[2]

As the unit began being pushed by more Geonosian forces, Mundi ordered that the flame troopers come to the front, which would push the Geonosians back. The Geonosians who were set on fire began flying out of the cave, with the 501st noticing, with the two groups uniting and headed towards the landing zone.[2]

Armor and Equipment[]

The clone flame troopers were equipped with specialized Phase I clone trooper armor, which had two variants, including the MK I Insulated armor and the MK II "Hotspot" Insulated armor. The troopers also utilized their weaponry, the BT X-42 heavy flame projectors, to their peak capacity.[2]
