|Clone SCUBA trooper|
Clone SCUBA troopers also known as clone subtroopers, were a variant of the clone troopers who served in the Grand Army of the Republic. They were deployed underwater, and carried special equipment and weapons that could function when submerged.
Like all clone troopers, SCUBA troopers were born on the planet Kamino, where they trained for under water combat. In 21 BBY, the Confederacy of Independent Systems began using Manta Droid Subfighters and other aqua droids, allying the Confederacy with Quarren and other aquatic species. It became obvious that the Republic needed to use aquatic soldiers and weapons to combat these new foes.
When the Quarren Isolation League joined forces with the CIS, it caused tensions between the QIL and the Mon Calamari people. The Republic chose to intervene for the sake of the loyal Mon Calamari people. An army of SCUBA troopers followed Kit Fisto to the Mon Calamari sea. On the way down they met a army of droids in battle. The SCUBA troopers fought the droid army on both foot and mini sub mounts, destroying the Manta droids and at least one Separatist sub-carrier.
Armor and EquipmentEdit
Clone SCUBA troopers were equipped with weapons specially designed for use in the water.
