First appearance: Attack of the Clones
Summary
Clone trooper pilots were special clone troopers bred in the Kamino cloning centers for the purpose of piloting craft of the Grand Army of the Republic and the early Galactic Empire. They first appeared at the Battle of Geonosis, where they flew LAAT/i and LAAT/c gunships. Pilots also operated CR20 and CR25 troop carriers. In addition, they flew starfighters such as the V-19 Torrent, ARC-170, and Alpha-3 Nimbus-class V-wing. The pilots who flew capital ships wore a special type of armor instead of the regular one, seen in the First Battle of Mon Calamari, during the Clone Wars. Pilots also knew how to operate all military land vehicles such as the AT-TEs.
These specialized troopers were normally equipped with a bolt caster, a blaster pistol, and a supply dispenser containing five packs of medicine, bacta, and ammunition. However, in space they discarded their bacta, ammo, and bolt casters for time bombs. When Phase I armor was in use, ground and starfighter pilots wore armor that featured yellow markings and red Republic symbols on their specialized helmets. Phase I pilots also had a box attached to their chest armor that supplied oxygen to their helmets. This armor was in use until the introduction of Phase II armor in late 21 BBY. Those who wore Phase II pilot armor were able to customize their armor. New armor for the pilots was also added with Phase 2 armor. As at that point Clone Z-95 starfighters were mainstream, they wore fully enclosed helmets. Later in mid 20 BBY, the armor was changed again to accommodate for the previously existing ARC-170 replacing the Z-95 as the mainstream starfighter.
Two sets of Phase II pilot armor were in use as of 19 BBY. The first set, which used a helmet that was not fully enclosed, was the more common set, as it was used by the majority of pilots. The second set, which had a fully enclosed helmet and armor that looked similar to that of an AT-AT pilot, was mainly used in the V-wing starfighter, which carried no life support system.
