Stealth operations clone troopers, known also as stealth ops clone troopers or stealth troopers, were a variant of clone troopers who were trained in the operation of stealth warships during the Clone Wars.

History[]

Stealth operations clone troopers were deployed during the Clone Wars in the Grand Army of the Republic. In 22 BBY, a few weeks after the First Battle of Geonosis, Jedi General Anakin Skywalker was deployed to the Battle of Christophsis, to support Senator Bail Organa with a relief mission. However, during the assault, a majority of their fleet was destroyed or critically damaged, which led to a tactical retreat. Regrouping with Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi, a new plan was devised, which was to deploy an experimental stealth ship. The special operations clone troopers manned the stealth ship with an operable cloaking device, led by Commander Blackout and his unit.[1]

The ship, deployed with Skywalker and Admiral Wulff Yularen at their aid, was tasked with moving past the Separatist blockade and provide the relief supplies to Organa. However, Skywalker and Yularen saw the advantage of the stealth ship to attack the Separatist Admiral Trench, something noted by Blackout during the encounter.[1] After Trench recognized that the Republic fleet had not deployed a counterattack, he deployed bomber droids to the planet's surface, striking near Organa's command center.[1] Once the stealth ship received word, Skywalker mounted an attack on the Separatist flagship. Although failing in their first attempt, the crew eventually managed to destroy the flagship.[1]
