|2nd Airborne Company|
- "Did you find Kenobi?"
"Sir, no one could've ever survived that fall."
- ―Cody and a paratrooper regarding General Kenobi's life after Order 66
In 21 BBY, the 2nd Airborne Company was stationed aboard the Republic auxiliary ship Core Conveyor, along with the Republic commandos of Omega Squad. The paratroopers resented Omega Squad because of their Mandalorian heritage- the 2nd Airborne had lost many battles to the Mandalorians. They outfitted Omega Squad with jet packs, which led to some disagreements because the commandos had black armor but the jet packs were orange and white.
After dropping off Omega Squad for a stealth mission on Gaftikar, the 2nd Airborne aboard the Core Conveyor headed for the planet Mirial.
Battle of CoruscantEdit
In 19 BBY, General Grievous launched a surprise attack against the capital planet Coruscant in an effort to capture Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, the Commander-in-chief of the clone armies. When the Separatists forces reached the planet's surface, the 212th Attack Battalion and the 2nd Airborne Company were deployed.
Battle of UtapauEdit
In 19 BBY General Grievous and many Separatists leaders were on the planet Utapau, holding the natives hostage. The 2nd Airborne Company and 212th Attack Battalion were deployed with Obi-wan Kenobi to defeat Grievous and secure Utapau. Despite suffering many casualties, the clone troops were able to defeat the droid forces.
Armor and EquipmentEditThe clone paratroopers of the 2nd Airborne Company were equipped with special gear in addition to their Phase II armor for high-altitude drops. These included jet packs, airborne helmets, extra explosives, armor plates, and kamas. They used DC-15S and DC-15A blasters as weapons in battle.
They bore orange markings on their armor to show their affilliation: the 212th Attack Battalion.
