GAR Clone Trooper Gunner (2)
Basic info
First appearance: Attack of the Clones
Summary
Clone gunners were specialized clone troopers who served in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars as gunners on several of the Galactic Republic's vehicles, warships, and heavy artillery cannons. While all clone troopers were trained to fire larger weapon platforms such as artillery and starship turbolasers, there were some who were selected for specialized training in this field. These elite specialists were trained by ARC troopers on Kamino to become experts in such an art and engaged enemies long before they could reach close range combat. One of the hardest lessons for such recruits to forget was the fact that sustained fire gave away their position. While a useful trait amongst clone troopers on the battlefield, clone gunners had to forget such an aspect in combat in order to work effectively. In terms of equipment, they were often provided with DC-15 blaster pistol for close range combat though they were typically seen using heavy weapon emplacements. These troopers wore custom Phase I and later Phase II clone armor that had grey and tan on the helmet and a little extra armor on the chest plate. The helmet was insulated from noise and in addition their armor was reinforced to better protect themselves from the recoil of the cannons that they manned. In terms of artillery, these soldiers were often seen operating AV-7 Antivehicle Cannons, the cannon of AT-TEs, and the heavy repeating blaster of Juggernaut tanks.
