. Unlike most army divisions, Special Forces is composed almost entirely of small squads of elite, highly trained soldiers specializing in irregular warfare. Relying on high mobility, extensive training and the latest military technologies, SpecForce squads exploited weaknesses that larger forces couldn't, giving the Republic military greater flexibility in addressing enemy threats. Standard assignments included reconnaissance, sabotage, asset recovery (enemy or friendly, personnel or materiel), search and destroy operations, and training and support for allied personnel.
Special forces troops wore various types of standard trooper armor depending on goal and environment of each specific mission. Their weapons arsenal also varied greatly as commandos were trained to fight using any type of weapon, from a blaster pistol to a heavy assault cannon.
